Following a huge reaction to their last show at The Hawk’s Well in 2011, the hand clapping, foot stomping Dublin Gospel Choir return for a very special concert on Saturday, September 28.
Performing a set that includes favourites such as ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’, ‘Something Inside So Strong’, and ‘O Happy Day’, Ireland’s best known group of gospel performers also include some hits by artists as diverse as Stevie Wonder (with whom they collaborated in 2012), Bruno Mars and Coldplay.
Not too many acts can boast of collaborations with music industry heavyweights such as Riverdance, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart, John Legend, Damien Rice, and The Chieftain.
This summer they performed with composer Ennio Morricone and had their 10th Main Stage performance at the Electric Picnic Festival. They are the first gospel artists to break into the top 30 Irish Charts (their latest album: Doing Their Thing).
From their modest beginnings as a local school choir in Dublin’s inner city 15 years ago, they have become a household name in Ireland, playing a host of concerts each year, plus a large number of festivals.
With a waiting list of over 200 people, their current membership is at 53 (35 females and 18 males).
Tickets (€20/18concession) are available from the Hawk’s Well Theatre Box Office on 071 916 1518 or
On Friday, September 27 Cherish the Ladies, return to the Hawk’s Well Theatre Sligo.
