BRIGID MAE POWER
FRIDAY 3rd FEB
ST PETERS CHURCH
10:30pm
€10 venue pass (includes Sky Horse & Death + Ian Whitty shows)

Brigid Mae Power is an Irish singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who, like Judie SillMicky Newburyor Linda Perhacs before her, paints her songs in dreamily expansive strokes, transporting earthly compositions into universal and exultant realms. Her self-titled debut on Tompkins Square is a majestic suite of reverb-swathed laments for voice, guitar, piano, accordion, and harmonium, recorded at the Portland studio of key musical foil Peter Broderick. Themes include transformation, change, motherhood, acceptance, strength, courage and trust. In the words of Power, the album is about “trusting if you lose yourself or your way — you can come back”.

Live, Brigid can encapsulate the timeless magic of her songs either solo or as a duo with Peter. Thus far she has toured throughout Ireland, UK and the US together with artists including Lee RanaldoRichard DawsonAlasdair RobertsPeter Broderick and Ryley Walker.

A masterpiece‘  – Uncut

Mantrically strummed guitars, pianos, hovering strings, pump organs alongside a startling voice, at once fluttery and steadfast, that has come out the other side of something, touching transcendence on the way‘ –   The Guardian
