Music: Hozier

Today ICC Digital is delighted to bring you something very special from ‘RTÉ Does Comic Relief’, the moment when the magnificent Irish singer Hozier wowed viewers with a stripped-back version of Simon and Garfunkel’s iconic track Bridge over Troubled Water 

The 30-year-old singer from Bray in Dublin, performed the stunning song in the empty surroundings of Croke Park, a venue which can usually hold close to 80,000 fans, and dedicated his performance to those who lost their lives during the Covid-19 crisis.  

Hozier, was voted ‘artist of the decade’ by Hot Press readers earlier this year.

If you look at the orchestra who are playing with Hozier, you will see the brilliant fiddle player Denice Doyle and her brother David on the cello, from the talented Doyle family who recently performed a stunning concert for ICC Digital’s Blooms Week. The concert is still available to watch on ICC Digital’s website, facebook page and Youtube channel.

Thank you to RTÉ for permission to share this performance.
