Jack Lukeman

Jack Lukeman  will play a special performance of ‘The Minstrel Boy’ with the RTE Concert Orchestra on Easter Monday at the Centenary Concert in the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre which will be broadcast live on RTE One television at 9.30pm.

Some acts confirmed to perform on the night also include Imelda May, Gavin James, Danny O’Reilly, Sharon Shannon and Dónal Lunny. 

‘The Minstrel Boy’ was originally written by Thomas Moore (1779–1852) in remembrance of those involved in the Irish Rebellion of 1798.

Jack will be returning to tour with Jools during 2016, along with his own international tour dates and launching a new album of his own songs later this year.
