10/24/14 Ian Gould Holland Curragh Irish Pub United States
Time: 7:00pm. Age restrictions: All Ages. Address: 73 East 8th Street, Holland Michigan 49423. Musician Ian Gould wryly warns his audiences, “If Irish eyes are smiling, you better watch your step!” A guitarist and singer from Belfast, Northern Ireland, Ian today shares Irish wit and his striking voice with American audiences. “Americans say I speak with a thick brogue,” Ian deadpans. “But I don’t hear a thick accent. In Ireland, brogues are just shoes.” Besides humor, Ian’s shows share pub spirit and conjure images of Ireland. Blending traditional Irish songs—everything from “Back Home in Derry” to “My Wild Irish Rose”—with contemporary music—from the Beatles to U2—Ian reminds audiences that “the only thing better than singing is more singing.” Still, Ian quips, “I don’t jig, and I don’t have Irish curls. Well, not anymore.”
