The extraordinary Jack L presents his hit show, The 27 Club, at An Grianán Theatre this Saturday night at 8pm.

In the concert, Jack L interprets the songs of a remarkable group of artists who all passed away at the age of 27. Classic tunes by iconic performers including Amy Winehouse, Brian Jones, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain all feature.

Each of these musicians left behind a lasting musical legacy. One is fabled for her throaty, gutsy singing style; another for his electrifying guitar riffs; a third for his rebellious, sensual stage presence. Some sang the blues, some loved jazz, still others graced the pop, R&B or alternative charts.

For some, the torments and triumphs of a short life were played out over Tumblr and Twitter. Others died in obscurity, their star rising only after death. No matter when they lived, how they died, or how diverse they were, every one of these artists now share a common heritage. Each of them is, without a doubt, legendary.

They are all interpreted by Jack Lukeman in his own spellbinding style. The show won the Spotlight Award for Best Musical Performance at the Edinburgh Festival this year.
