The County Donegal born and Dublin residing Kevin Doherty’s career has been following dual courses over the last dozen years or so. Having established himself on the Irish music scene via the Pyros and Gooseberries, he became a member of the internationally renowned Four Men And A Dog in the early 90s.

Countless concert tours followed and six albums were recorded. Two of their records ‘Dr As’ and ‘Long Roads’ were recorded in Levon Helm’s studio in New York after the band (Four Men and a Dog!) accepted an offer from Levon to come to Woodstock.

Returning to Ireland Kevin formed one of his most enduring musical friendships with the great James Delaney. They toured together as a duo and then with an expanding line up that included Henry McCullough. They soon went into the studio to record Kevin’s second solo album ‘Sweetwater’.

Kevin has combined ‘solo’ and ‘Dog’ work ever since and along with James, Paul Moore, Conor Brady, Des Lacey and Paul Rodden he formed the group ‘Telegraph’.

The show was devised by Kevin with Alan Farquharson and Eleanor Methven and featured a contiguous assortment of songs and specially commissioned films by Alan, Kieron Walsh and Enda Mc Callion. The album received a 5 star review in the Irish Times – declaring it ‘one of the albums of the year’.
