Pierce Turner (Ireland’s former solo performer of the year) returns to Joe’s Pub for what has become an annual NYC event. Last year he launched his highly acclaimed Gerry Leonard (David Bowie, Rufus Wainwright) produced album at Joe’s Pub, and since then he has toured Ireland with the album Terrible Good creating standing ovations at every turn, he is renowned for being a dynamic performer. Irish folk superstar Christy Moore has covered his songs and even wrote one about him.
