Having recently completed a UK tour with Lucy Spraggan, Northern Irish singer-songwriter and producer Gareth Dunlop heads straight back out on the road this week for eight shows as the special guest of US blues and Americana legend Bonnie Raitt. Their tour itinerary is as follows:

01.06.23  DUBLIN Vicar Street
03.06.23  LONDON Palladium
06.06.23  BOURNEMOUTH Pavilion Theatre
07.06.23  OXFORD New Theatre
09.06.23  GATESHEAD Sage One
11.06.23  GLASGOW Royal Concert Hall
14.06.23  MANCHESTER Bridgewater Hall
15.06.23  BIRMINGHAM Symphony Hall

A fan of Raitt’s since his mid-teens when he saw her on an Old Grey Whistle Test compilation DVD, Dunlop reveals that “her ‘Too Long At the Fair’ got an instant replay. There was just something about her voice grabbing the blue notes outside of the melody and her incredible guitar playing that gave off this effortless attitude. Putting my own music out into the world has thrown up some unexpected and surprising twists and turns over the years but I never thought opening shows for Bonnie Raitt would be one of them. I’m absolutely stoked to have been asked!”

Dunlop has added two London dates with US country music hit-maker Josh Turner to his schedule, with the pair performing at the Union Chapel on 12th and 13th July. Dunlop will also play his own headlining show in the capital at The Lower Third on 16th November, with tickets available HERE.
