THE IRISH VILLAGE

Drew Jones

A professional musician in Dubai since 2003, and a resident solo singer at the Irish Village since 2005.Drew is also the founding member of the well-known band, The Maplejacks. Primarily a singer and acoustic guitarist, Drew has in recent years all but abandoned his karaoke-style backing tracks in favour of a loop pedal. “The looper allows me to record my guitar, voice or percussion live, then play over the top of it, creating the sense of a small band playing with just one guitar and one voice. It keeps the performance ‘real’ and audiences can see that I’m actually playing everything they hear.”

 

His choice of repertoire has evolved from audience requests over the years, although he admits, “Why anyone would think to ask a man from Yorkshire to sing Celine Dion or Mariah Carey is still a mystery to me!”

 “I love my job – playing music has taken me to every corner of the Middle East, back to the UK and most places in between, but the Irish Village will always feel like my ‘home’ gig,” he says.
