Síomha comes to glór for what promises to be an enthralling performance on the Easter Weekend.
Independent Irish singer and guitarist Síomha (pronounced She-vah) dances the line between folk, jazz and neo-soul effortlessly taking audiences on an unexpected and unforgettable journey with her soulful melodies. Her debut album ‘Infinite Space’ – described by The Irish Times as “a seriously accomplished and self-confident debut” – is a collection of songs in both Irish and English. A kind of cosmic, folk-informed, jazz-tinged, post-pop – it was produced by GRAMMY-nominated Tyler Duncan and features an all-star lineup of musicians including Joe Dart (Vulfpeck), Louis Cato (Bobby McFerrin/ Snarky Puppy), Martin Atkinson Borrull (Toucan) and violinist Jeremy Kittel (Bela Fleck/ Chris Thile). Síomha’s voice is full of raw heart-felt experience. When listening to her, audiences are instantly moved to feel on the deepest level and come out more intimately connected to their own worlds.
SÍOMHA will be supported by Róise McHugh.

SÍOMHA draws on a deep well of soul. This music transcends boundaries in a way I’ve never heard. And every second of every song is rooted in groove.”
