Tilia Line Up Introducing Kieran Goss

Kieran Goss is one of the performing artists during the the Tilia Festival 2009 in Luinjeberd / Heerenveen Netherlands. Kieran Goss was born and raised in County Down, Northern Ireland. While growing up he was influenced by the music of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Frank Sinatra and The Rolling Stones.
After qualifying as a lawyer in the mid-eighties, Kieran left home for France and Germany in order to avoid being drafted into the legal profession. He came back home to Ireland in 1989 to record his first album, Brand New Star. It contained the songs Brand New Star and Just Around The Corner, which came to the attention of Mary Black. She recorded both songs for her album, Babes In The Wood.
Kieran followed up Brand New Star with the albums New Day (1994), Worse Than Pride (1998) , which contained the Top 10 single Out Of My Head. Red-Letter Day followed this in 2000, and in 2002, Kieran released the compilation, Out Of My Head... The Best Of Kieran Goss, followed by Blue Sky Sunrise (2005), Kieran Goss Trio Live, Kieran’s first ever live album (2008) and I’ll Be Seeing You (February 2009). Look at Kierans
