From the fields of Glastonbury to BBC TV soundtracks via 100’s of millions of Spotify streams and 100’s of late night clubs, Kormac has always blazed a trail. This night is a joyous celebration of his 15th year in music.

KORMAC says “My most recent album, Equivalent Exchange, was actually written with the National Concert Hall in mind. Equivalent Exchange was the first body of work I’d written that used an orchestra on every track and I visited the hall every week for over a year watching any orchestra I could, learning as much as possible. Over that period, I really fell in love with the room. When it came time to mix the album, I tried to make it sound as if the listener was sitting right in the centre of row four.

“I can’t think of a better venue to showcase my earlier work, the music I’ve been making recently and to show people where I’m headed in the future. I’m so delighted to have a huge number of the collaborators I’ve worked with over the last 15 years joining me on the night. I think it’s going to be one for the books!”
