Tweedy has announced a date at Dublin’s Vicar Street on January 28th, 2015.

Jeff Tweedy, best known as the leader of the band Wilco, has a new project, Tweedy, a musical collaboration with his 18 year old son and drummer, Spencer Tweedy. The duo’s debut album is called “Sukierae”, and features 20 songs written by Jeff.

“When I set out to make this record, I imagined it being a solo thing, but not in the sense of one guy strumming an acoustic guitar and singing,” Jeff said. “Solo to me meant that I would do everything – write the songs, play all the instruments and sing. But Spencer’s been with me from the very beginning demo sessions, playing drums and helping the songs take shape. In that sense, the record is kind of like a solo album performed by a duo.”

Tickets for the Vicar Street show priced €40.55 will go on sale Thursday, October 30th, at 9am.
