It’s a long way from Namibia to here – 5,398 miles, to be precise – but, you get the impression Wayne Woodman could make a happy home anywhere on this planet.
All he needs is a mic, a stage and, if he’s lucky, Rachel Duffy on harp and Tim Doyle on the oul’ pipes.
Which is probably why Wayne Woodman is so looking forward to his upcoming Mother’s Day concert in sunny Greystones.
Having been encouraged as a child to follow music by his singer father, Wayne started out in the classical world but has, since moving to Ireland five years ago, added many other genres and colours to his repertoire. And so it is that alongside the likes of Nessun Dorma (Latin for Jackie Charlton Is God) and Nella Fantasia, audiences get to hear the likes of Danny Boy and Hallelujah.
“It means that you get this wonderful contrast happening all the time,” says Woodman. “It’s like constantly adding different ingredients in a dish, and the unique blend created there and then just makes for something entirely new each time.”
Man, why are we suddenly hungry…?
You can find out what all the fuss is about when Wayne Woodman returns to Greystones – alongside contralto Grace Foley – on Saturday, August 31st. In the meantime, we thought we’d find out what makes ol’ brown eyes tick…
