“Ireland’s foremost gospel musicians” (Metro)
From their modest beginnings as a local school choir in Dublin’s inner city in the mid 1990s, the Dublin Gospel Choir have become a household name in Ireland, playing a host of concerts each year, plus a large number of corporate and charity events. Their annual slot at Ireland’s internationally-acclaimed boutique festival Electric Picnic is now legendary and the choir are no stranger to large outdoor venues either, having performed to a sell-out 82,000 crowd at Croke Park. They have shared the stage with music industry heavyweights such as Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart, John Legend, Damien Rice and The Chieftains. The choir also featured along with Chris de Burgh on a special New Year’s Day BBC Songs of Praise programme which was broadcast to over 35 million viewers worldwide.
To great acclaim, the choir released their debut album Moving On in 2006; featuring a mix of gospel classics and contemporary cover versions.Their second album Doing Their Thing repeats this mix of the traditional and the modern. Doing Their Thing is out now!
