Duffy announces Irish dates

DuffyWelsh songstress Duffy is heading to Ireland as part of her 12 date UK & Ireland Tour.

Duffy will play in Dublin’s Olympia Theatre on Monday, November 24 and Belfast’s St. George’s Market on Tuesday, November 25.

Since her appearance on Wawffactor (apparently a Welsh hybrid of X factor and Pop Idol) and debut single sung in her native tongue, Aimee Duffy dropped her first name but still couldn’t shake comparisons with “the other Amy”.

Despite constant comparisons with Ms. Winehouse and being dubbed the British Dusty Springfield, Duffy has carved out her own niche in the saturated UK female artist market and has proved very popular with fans and critics alike.

Rather disappointingly, however, we found her new single a little lacklustre and bland.
