CIARA SIDINE

Performing from her new album Unbroken Line, folk, alt country and blues singer-songwriter Ciara Sidine’s latest release was described by Hot Press as “an outstanding second album…a compelling mix of aesthetic brilliance and poignant empathy”. With a keen eye to Ireland’s recent history and current social landscape, her musical stylings draw from the American tradition, with its astute voicing of socially relevant themes through simple story. Yet her touch is always light, as she lets the voice speak for itself in a live performance that is as tender as it is tempestuous, always guaranteed to move.

“A great singer, and at times the resemblance to Emmylou Harris is almost uncanny, with the same heartbreaking throaty glory.” ★★★★ ACOUSTIC MAGAZINE

Finest Flower (video below) – an ode to survivors of mother and baby homes and Magdalene Laundries – and Trouble Come Find Me say it best

This special Christmas gig will have a seasonal feel, with a first-class band including Conor Brady, Ciara’s co-producer and musical partner.

RTÉ Radio 1 Album of the Week

“Politically and socially charged, her songs speak of the contemporary and the universal. Sidine’s languid vocal delivery has a way of making even the shiniest, happiest moments teeter with a dark undercurrent.” Siobhán Long ★★★★ IRISH TIMES

“Unbroken Line is one of those rare things, a delightful, captivating release worthy of any modern Americana-roots lover’s attention.” ★★★★ BLUES MAGAZINE

“A crystal clear country rock and roots voice…the sweetheart of the Celtic Americana rodeo.” ★★★★ RTÉ GUIDE

“Pure Americana, a David Lynch soundtrack refashioned in a thrilling new way by a native of Dublin.” RTÉ GUIDE

“The remarkable vocalist has used her remarkable vocal to offer a searing critique of Irish society.” IRISH WORLD
