EP Launch Reschedule

UPDATE Unfortunately my upcoming EP launch has been postponed to Sat 30th April. Due to increasing Covid infection rates the Out To Lunch festival made the tough but wise decision to postpone all shows…but it means we will be able to have fun in the sun this April, tickets already bought can be used for the new date Sat 30th April! http://www.cqaf.com for more details 🤗

Distant Sky/Rathlin film

Recently I recorded a new song called ‘La Lune’ for a short film in association with Tourism Ireland and Snow Water. A lovely socially distanced recording in Helens Bay to highlight the ‘Distant Sky’ music festival on Rathlin Island which should have been happening over the weekend of the summer solstice.  Check it out below! 🙂

Sunday Brunch at the Atlantic Sessions

The great news just keeps coming!!

Very honoured to have been invited by Radio Ulster’s Ralph McLean to perform at his Sunday Brunch show at the Flowerfield Arts Centre on Nov 18th as part of the annual Atlantic Sessions festival..9 weeks today!

Every year the beautiful north coast becomes a hub of music and the Sunday Brunch show is one of the highlights every year.

I’ll be sharing the stage with some other wonderful artists including Matt McGinn, Kitt Phillipa and Arborist!

This is what Ralph had to say about the lineup ‘We’ve got rising star Kitt Philippa, whose beautiful blend of electronica and song writing has been winning them friends all over in 2018, the hugely talented Ciara O’Neill, whose gorgeous album Arrow is one of my essential releases of the year so far, Armagh songsmith Matt McGinn, who’s long been a favourite on my BBC radio shows, and a performance from the sublimely talented Mark McCambridge AKA Arborist to look forward to. ‘

Tickets will go quickly for this so get in there early and purchase right here for 15 of your hard earned pounds
