Galway International Arts Festival and Róisín Dubh present

Gavin James

Gavin James will take to the stage on Friday 26 July 2024 for another unforgettable performance at the Heineken® Big Top. Few singer-songwriters are so able to capture the stuff of our intimate lives - love, heartache, loss, joy - like Gavin James.

Honing his performing and song writing gifts as a busker and pub performer in Dublin, since being championed by the likes of Ed Sheeran and the release of his early records (including debut studio album, 2016’s Bitter Pill) James has built a community of fans that have seen his music streamed three billion times across the globe and earn diamond and platinum records in multiple countries. He has also sold more than 250 000 tickets (and counting) worldwide with a live show that is as transporting as it is uplifting.

In Fall 2023, James returns with a new single, “White Noise” that sees him expanding his creativity (his vocal is in a deeper signature, adding a magnetic resonance to the lyrics) and is a precursor to a new album of original material that he’s recording in a studio on a mountain outside his home city of Dublin.
