In just six short weeks, on Monday May 19th, Ray Davies will be taking to the stage at the National Concert Hall at this year’s Dublin Writers Festival. The former front-man of the iconic sixties band, The Kinks, will be there not to sing nor to play guitar but instead will be sitting down in conversation with Joseph O’Connor to talk about his life and his new book, Americana: the Kinks, the Road and the Perfect Riff. Tickets are still available and are priced at €20 and €18 with a concession. Don’t miss out on this exciting event!
It will hopefully prove to be a great night’s entertainment and a fantastic start to this year’s festival. In anticipation of this, and to whet your appetite a little, every week we will be posting a song by The Kinks. Today’s song, “Waterloo Sunset”, is one of my favourites from the band and is presented here for your weekend listening pleasure.
