Pierce Turner: Why Use 2 Words When 10 Will Do

January 17

Joe's Pub


Doors at 6PM
Show at 7PM

Award winning Irish musician Pierce Turner is not only considered one of Ireland’s greatest performers, he has won an award that says so! Also a favored son of Manhattan he is currently working on a book “Why use 2 words when 10 will do” about the colorful adventures surrounding the creation of his highly praised songbook. This show at Joe’s Pub (where he has performed repeatedly to full houses) will feature Pierce’s poignant and hilarious anecdotal excerpts from the book, wound around his superb songs, piano playing, and passionate vocal performance. 

The Irish Times declared Turner “Easily one of the most important Irish rock artists of the last twenty years” He was on the cover of New York Magazine hailed as “New York’s undiscovered gem” His songs have been a host of movies - including  the acclaimed HBO Show “ The Wire” and the Academy award winning Director Jim Sheridan said that a Turner performance in New York inspired him to be fearless about making his classic “My Left Foot”  The list of positive reviews go on forever, but all that is important really is to know that this is a great performer with such great songs that Liam Fay of the Sunday Times, said “He has created what I confidently believe to be the finest body of work in contemporary Irish music, bar none”
