Luke Clerkin Clondalkin

Following a jam packed 2022, Luke Clerkin is set to release his highly anticipated Live From the Library EP on February 24th. Live From The Library was recorded in North Clondalkin Library as part of a Music Residency in the library’s Creative Studio. The EP will include live stripped back acoustic versions of fan-favourites, ‘Fall in Line’ and ‘Normal People’. It will also debut some new songs which have been written over the past few years.

To celebrate the release, Luke will play his biggest headliner in four years at The Workman’s Club Main Room on February 24th. Luke will be joined on the night by Bríd Lyons and The Accidental Rapper. Talking about the release of ‘Live From the Library’, Luke said ‘This is a passion project, something I’ve wanted to do for a while. I want to showcase the songs that I’ve been working on as part of my residency and I want to do that in their purest form. These songs will also serve as taster for a bigger project that I’ve been working on.’

Talking about The Workman’s Club show, Luke said ‘This is my biggest show in years, so expect some big surprises! The Workman’s Club has always been one of my favourite rooms to play, and getting the opportunity to headline it again is both scary and exciting!’

Luke Clerkin is the current North Clondalkin Library Musician in Residence and two time Sports and Cultural Council Song-Writing competition winner. His music has gained international airplay and support, whilst also topping the Irish Singer Songwriter Charts on multiple occasions. Luke is known mostly for playing over 250 gigs in 2015, as a way of honing his craft. Since then he has headlined famous Dublin venues such as Whelan’s, The Workman’s Club, and The Button Factory. His music has brought him all over the world, with multiple tours of Germany, as well as festival slots in America, The UK, and Ireland. 

After a busy 2022 which saw Luke release his Owl Compass EP, play slots at Electric Picnic and headline a sold out Cobblestone show, 2023 will see Luke release a live EP recorded at the Creative Studio at North Clondalkin Library. 2023 will also see Luke start recording his long awaited debut album, which has an expected November release.
