  • Description

    Although there's a strong Irish literary and musical tradition at play in Pierce Turner's work his music still defies categorization: a singer/songwriter who fuse blues, balladry and the bar-room with Pierce's dexterity. Blend in his blissfully adroit 'Song For A Verry Small Orchestra' and definition is further confused. Amongst the likes of Dylan, Springsteen, Waits, Newman and Cohen the work of the Wexford wonder boy Pierce Turner would rest comfortably. In the '80's Pierce Turner - a Wexford man who now lives in Manhattan-released three solo albums on Beggars Banquet Records to unanimous critical acclaim. 'Songs For A Verry Small Orchestra' features Philip Glass.
