Brigid Mae Power + Special Guests
The Rose Hill, Brighton.
This event is for 18 and over - No refunds will be issued for under 18s.
Irish singer-songwriter Brigid Mae Power is a multi-instrumentalist who paints her songs in dreamily expansive strokes, transporting earthly compositions into exultant realms.
Her self-titled debut album released on Tompkins Square Records, recorded at the Portland studio of key musical foil Peter Broderick, is a majestic suite of reverb-swathed laments for voice, guitar, piano, accordion, and harmonium. The record investigates transformation, change, motherhood, acceptance, strength, courage and trust. Power says the album was about "trusting if you lose yourself or your way - you can come back".
Produced by Peter Broderick, Brigid Mae Power's' second album 'The Two Worlds', also on Tompkins Square records, is another masterful collection of effortless, hypnotic folk and an album which furthers the songwriter and multi-instrumentalist already stellar reputation.
Whether performing solo or with Peter Broderick as a duo, Brigid is the kind of live performer who spins a kind of magic with her songs that propels the audience into something timeless and elemental.
Thus far she has toured throughout Ireland, UK and the US together with artists including Lee Ranaldo, Richard Dawson, Alasdair Roberts, Peter Broderick and Ryley Walker, with performances at Le Guess Who? and TUSK festivals along the way.
