After taking a break last year, Dublin's annual Jeff Buckley Tribute Night is due to go ahead on May 23rd.

An annual event since 2007, the evening pays homage to the hugely influential singer who was swept away by the Mississippi in in May, 1997. The night which takes place in Dublin's Grand Social venue and all proceeds will go to the Niall Mellon Township Trust. The event has raised over €3000 since it began in 2007.

The line-up this year includes Dave McGuinness and Band, with special guests. They will perform songs by Jeff, and songs he was inspired by.

In 2009, Buckley's mother, Mary Guibert, attended a special Dublin screening of Grace Around The World, a DVD featuring live performances of the songs from her son's album Grace, which was voted Mojo magazine’s No. 1 Modern Rock Classic of all Time.

Doors open for The Jeff Buckely Tribute Night at 8.30pm. Tickets priced €8 and €7 for students, are available from entertainment.ticketsolve.com/shows/873492436/events
