Larry Beau is a Galway born Minstrel, composer and story collector. He began as resident musician with San Francisco’s Omnicircus after a stint in performance school at Berkeley, California in 2001. From there he developed his new identity as a modern-day Irish Minstrel inspired by twelve months’ story collecting on the Dingle Peninsula in 2002.
Since then he has travelled with his show to New York, Hollywood, Edinburgh, Florence and Berlin’s travelling vintage tavern -Spiegeltent. Beau has had released three critically acclaimed albums to date, the most recent: William The Brave, a collection of songs from his Folk-Opera, was written while on residency at The Shell Cottage at Carton House, formally home to Marian Faithful. His voice and dramatic stage presence has garnered comparisions to David Bowie, Roy Orbison and Kate Bush.
