winter is here, isn't this the best time to get out of the house and escape the cold and boredom? What better way than to go see a concert? 104.5 KDAT has your chance to see Irish singer/songwriter Foy Vance this Friday

Award-winning Northern Irish singer/songwriter Foy Vance has announced a very special tour to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of his breakthrough 2013 album Joy Of Nothing.

Joy Of Nothing features Ed Sheeran (on “Guiding Light”) and Bonnie Raitt (on “You And I”), both of whom Vance supported on world tours, and he also toured with Sir Elton John and Snow Patrol, as well as his own sell-out headline tours.

Recorded in Donegal on Ireland’s west coast, Joy Of Nothing was Vance’s second full-length album and proved a critical and commercial breakthrough for the Bangor-born musician, winning the inaugural Northern Ireland Music Prize. All Music praised, “Steeped in the bold, big-sky expansiveness of the American Southwest, yet devoid of any of its machismo, Vance milks courage and strength from unflinching emotional honesty.”

WHO: Foy Vance, with special guest Bonnie Bishop
WHERE: Englert Theatre (221 East Washington St.
Iowa City, Iowa)
WHEN: Friday, January 26th starting at 7:30 pm
