Ghostpoet – Whelans, 26th September

The Mercury Music Prize-nominated Ghostpoet plays Whelans on 26th September & we’ve a couple of tickets to be won, thanks to our pals at

The days of struggling to even get his demo tapes heard must seem like a distant memory to Ghostpoet aka MC Obarao Ejimiwe, who arrives in Dublin for a Whelan’s show on September 26th now armed with a critically acclaimed album and a Mercury Music Prize nomination.

Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam was released in February on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings and immediately had music journalists reaching for their thesauruses in an attempt to pin down this enormously exciting & multifaceted moody beast of a record. Despite its manifold influences – part hip hop, part soul, part jazz, part experimental – Peanut Butter Blues is a tremendously assured & focussed, bold & always inventive debut album.

There are many wise heads who believe that Ghostpoet is destined for true greatness and listening to Peanut Butter Blues as a statement of intent would indicate that there is much yet to be revealed about this audaciously talented MC & producer. For now however we’re just delighted that he is playing Whelan’s at such a pivotal moment in his career and we would gently urge you to make it down to catch a true rising star in an intimate venue. presents Mercury Music Prize nominee
