Tramore Show with Robert Carl Blank, 9 June 2022

I am delighted to announce that I will be performing with renowned German Singer/ Songwriter Robert Carl Blank for a unique collaboration. Thursday 9 June 2022 Victoria House, Tramore, Co. Waterford https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/leslie-dowdall-and-robert-carl-blank-live-at-victoria-house-tramore-tickets-341264339827 Robert Carl Blank is a restless and passionate idealist who set out for a life as a musician without any pretences and compromises. Untouched by the amenities of the bourgeois life-style he travels the world year in and year out, armed only with a collection of guitars, a parachute and a lot of Soul. The careful observer he is, Robert always collects new material and plots down his experiences and impressions as coded road journals. With his debut solo album “SOUL CIRCUS” (analoghaus, 2008) Robert delivered a true globetrotter CD and earned enthusiastic reviews from the press. Intro Magazine praised the album for its radio-friendliness and saw “a good ray of hope between Jack Johnson and American Idol.” His second album “LAST TIME I SAW DAVE” (analoghaus, 2010) delivered a set of more sophisticated songs and testified to the maturing of an artist who is a refreshing alternative to the generally uniform plastic commercial pop singer/songwriters of the age.

Brightlight EP Release - August 2021

While most of us have been catching up on box sets, Leslie Dowdall has been busy making music. Drawing on the emotions of these turbulent times, she has penned four soulful new tracks – conquering love, loss and letting go. Leslie is proud to introduce her new solo EP BRIGHTLIGHT – due for release mid-August on her label LD Records. Undaunted by the challenges of recording in lockdown, and adapting to using Zoom as part of the creative process, she set about making the magic happen. Together with famed producer, Peter Eades (Finbar Furey, Dubliners etc.) who gave his invaluable skills, time and creative input, they jumped every hurdle and cut a record. The result is proof that where there’s a will... there’s music. Alongside recording her new EP, Leslie also embraced the move to online concerts, taking part in Rock against Homelessness @ Windmill lane, with award winning Mark Caplice and Rathfarnham Rhythms, with Mike Hanrahan, which was recorded in the beautiful setting of Rathfarnham castle, and is due for release shortly. Like music fans everywhere, Leslie is longing for the buzz of a live gig... but in the meantime, she hopes you enjoy listening to BRIGHTLIGHT as much as she enjoyed creating it! Leslie wishes to thank the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports and Media for their support via the MISP Recording Stimulus
