Live Gig Video: watch Dermot Kennedy’s Tiny Desk Concert at NPR

To say Irish lad Dermot Kennedy made a splash at SXSW 2018 this year would be an understatement. The Dubliner blends two seemingly disparate worlds – that of the hip-hoppers and the singer/songwriters – hits the spot for music fans young and old. When he stopped by NPR recently for a Tiny Desk Concert, he decided he wanted to do something special with his performance. That is, NPR reported that he and his band arrived a day ahead of time to meet and rehearse with the local Howard Gospel Choir to add another vocal layer to their ensuing performance. Watch these special, rousing renditions of ‘Moments Passed’, ‘An Evening I Would Not Forget’ and ‘Glory’ live from the NPR office in Northeast Washington below. The first two of those songs appeared on the EP ‘Mike Dean Presents: Mike Kennedy’, which dropped in April. To read all of our past coverage on Dermot Kennedy, including a Bands to Watch piece Carrie wrote before SXSW 2018, go here.
