with Paul Sherry | Siomha | Joel Harkin

Monaghan based Paul Sherry is a singer songwriter and session guitarist of some renown. His most recent album release Let It Flow has gained nationwide airplay and rave reviews including being named Album of The Week on Bernard Clarke’s Blue Of The Nile on RTE Lyric FM. His live performances are an explosion of energy and feel, taking audiences on a journey of meditative acoustic to full on electric band power. He’s toured Let It Flow throughout Ireland, the UK, Europe and The US in addition to touring internationally with the Grainne Duffy Band for whom he is co-writer and guitarist.

Siomha (pronounced She-vah) dances the line between folk, jazz and neo-soul. It’s a kind of cosmic, folk-informed, jazz-tinged, post-pop which effortlessly takes audiences on an unexpected and unforgettable journey with her soulful melodies. Her debut album Infinite Space, produced by Grammy nominated Tyler Duncan and featuring an all-star lineup of musicians, is described by The Irish Times as “A seriously accomplished and self-confident debut”.

Vibrant vocals, soulful songs, heartfelt lyrics, mighty players. Music as sophisticated as this is a rarity these days – Paul Brady

Joel Harkin is a singer of songs and a spinner of yarns from Convoy, Co. Donegal. His 2020 album Never Happy was shortlisted for the NI Music Prize. Joel lies awake at night, terrified at the prospect of the looming abyss and channels these fears into his haunting songs. But don’t let that put you off – he’s known for the contrast between his music and the whimsical, very funny chatting he does as he tunes his guitar. He hopes you think he’s good craic!

This is the sort of misery that I love – BBC Radio 1
