The Return of Austin Durack , Singer Songwriter

at The Acoustic Club, The White House, Limerick

Thurs December 4th

For over ten years now Austin’s guitar music is being played on

national radio. His albums Dreams and Soft Guitars (2002), A Guitar

Journey (2008), Drops Of Jazz (2012) and Fingerpicker (2014), feature

regularly on Radio 1, Lyric FM and Radio Na Gaeltachta.

However, he started out as a singer/songwriter. His very first songs were

performed by his group Jabberwocky, who won a major international

competition in 1975, appeared on The Late Late Show a year later

and toured Germany three times. With his first album, The Soldier

(1981), Austin embarked on a solo career and started touring Ireland

and Europe regularly. He released his first single, How Many Times in

1985. His follow up, A Beautiful Flight, was an airplay hit and led to

the release of his Heroes album in 1987. This one was on Crannog (a

sister label to Mary Coughlan’s Mystery Records) with distribution by

WEA. In 1989 his album High Road To Glory was released on Larrikin

Records, in Australia. What’s Another Continent (1996), featured the

best of his songs plus some new compositions. He performed in many

parts of Europe, South Africa, Peru and China, where his 1996 song

There’s A Wall, was published. He performed solo on TV shows The

Late Late Show (1986), Evening Extra and Nighthawks (both in 1989).

Austin is the special guest at The Acoustic Club, Limerick on Dec.4th

A return to his songs, has been on his mind for the last couple of years

and he feels that now the time is right. The reaction of people to his A

Beautiful Flight when it appeared on the 2012 Limerick On Record

compilation of the best of Limerick music (including Richard Harris,

The Cranberries etc) was a major factor in his decision. In 2004 Hot

Press said of his song, My Sweet Dream (from Dreams And Soft

Guitars ), “ My Sweet Dream could easily be a jazz standard in years to

come.” Austin will perform these and other originals, on his return to

his first love, which was that of performing his own songs, on December 4th.

in Limerick the 2014 city of culture.
