Official Jeff Buckley Tribute Night, Dublin August 23

This year's Official Jeff Buckley Tribute Night will be held in Whelan's of Dublin, 20 years to the day that Jeff played the venue on the same day his debut album, Grace, was released worldwide.

Whelan's, itself celebrating its 25th anniversary, will host the night on Saturday August 23 and former Lir frontman Dave McGuinness will lead the band, which will be joined by special guests. 

The annual Official Jeff Buckley Tribute Night began in 2007, to mark the 10th anniversary of Jeff’s passing when he was swept away by the mighty Mississippi. 

In 2009, Jeff's mother, Mary Guibert, attended a special screening in Dublin to celebrate the release of Grace Around The World, a DVD featuring live performances of the songs from Grace
