Kick off the festive season with a night of Christmas classics, originals and the odd carol all performed by David C Clements accompanied by Arco String Quartet.

David C Clements has been grabbing the attention of music lovers through his exceptional live performances for quite some time. His is an epic and heavenly alternative folk with swelling melodies and vocals touched with the ache of experience retelling tales that feel at once both insightful and familiar.

Clements was already a well-respected musician having cut his teeth performing with former band SixStarHotel, yet it is his solo material that demands most attention seeing him perform with Ed Sheeran and Passenger as well as collaborating with Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol).

DCC released his debut album 'The Longest Day In History' receiving critical acclaim.

The Irish Times - "skillfully balanced between anthemic, heartfelt and Springsteenesque"

The Irish News - "The brilliant title track is a slice of indie-pop perfection and sees Clements move away from Americana into epic shoe-gazey electric guitar-centric goodness that recalls Iain Archer at his very best.”

Hotpress - "David C Clements could just be the pick of the new Northern Ireland singer-songwriter bunch”

Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol) - "Still one of the greatest pieces of music ever to be made by a Northern Irish artist. Hurricane by David C Clements from 2016. It’s seven minutes long but you gotta listen all the way through as the best bit’s the last few mins!"
