PRESS

"This film is a long overdue portrayl of a much loved and still sadly missed figure on the dublin scene... the archive footage is particulary fascinating"
HOT PRESS

"In this definitive films, the music is what eventually remains. And I am now almost completley convinced, in the absence of any new evidence to the contrary, that Luke Kelly was actually the greatest singer of all time. Not the greatest folk singer, bit the greatest singer, ever, of anything, in the history of the world"
