A new radio documentary that explores Jeff Buckley's Irish connections - as well as audio footage of his gig at the Trinity Ball in 1992 - has gone online.
'Sin-é: Jeff Buckley’s Irish Odyssey' was produced by music journalist Steve Cummins and is part of RTÉ Radio One’s Documentary on One strand.
On the eve of what would have been Buckley’s 50th birthday, Cummins explores Buckley’s untold connections with Ireland, including his role performing with The Commitments and friendships with musicians Glen Hansard and Mark Geary.
The footage of him performing at the Trinity Ball - his first performance outside the US, where he played a five-song set that included covers by Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan and Van Morrison - has never been heard before now. The gig, in May 1992, took place two years before he would sign the deal for his celebrated debut album 'Grace'.
You can hear the documentary online now, or on RTÉ Radio One on Saturday, November 12th at 2pm. It will be repeated at 7pm on Sunday, November 13th.
