Local singer David Keenan has a new fan in Deputy Leader of the UK Labour Party
Local singer/songwriter David Keenan has received a glowing endorsement from the deputy leader of the UK’s Labour Party.
The 23-year-old, from Knockbridge, has been generating huge support in the Irish music scene of late with Hozier, Damien Dempsey and Glen Hansard amongst his confirmed admirers.
Since its recent release, the video of his single ‘Cobwebs’ has attracted almost 100,000 views on YouTube.
Keenan has been busy gigging of late and performed at Glastonbury last weekend where Labour’s Tom Watson was amongst the crowd.
The Labour Party deputy tweeted: “I discovered David Keenan at Glasto. He’s got a voice that seems 20 years older than the rest of him.”

Keenan responded in style by using the Labour Party slogan coined by leader Jeremy Corbyn, saying he hoped his music could be “for the many, not the few”.
Meanwhile, Keenan uploaded a new video last week for thesoundfeed.com of him performing his track ‘Josey Wales’.
