A rare opportunity to have three huge songwriting talents share the stage in a special ‘Round’ style setting later next month.
Multi-Award winning Canadian artist Rose cousins has spent the last year in a series of collaborations with the Boston music community, The result is her new record ‘We have made a spark’ which gets released in Europe on May 28th. To celebrate it’s release Rose has been invited to play the big ‘Canada Day’ concert in Trafalgar square, London. Rose makes a welcome return to Ireland before this performance and keeping the spirit of collaboration up with the Irish music community is joined on stage on June 25th with Irish song-writers Juliet Turner & Orlagh De Bhaldraithe.
Since the release of her Meteor award winning album ‘Season of the Hurricane’ Juliet Turner took an extended break to complete a BSc in Clinical Speech and Language Studies at Trinity College, Dublin. Now successfully graduated her fourth studio album titled ‘People Have Names’, is a deeply compassionate affair — noticeably less fiery than her previous work, but no less engaging as a result. Juliet has been touring country wide in support of the record of late, The show will hopefully se her play songs from all ends of her catalog.
Mayo native Orlagh De Bhaldraithe has been writing and recording songs for her long over due Sophomore album due to be complete during 2012. Since the release of her first record in 2001, Orlagh has been heavily involved in all corners of the arts in Ireland from acting roles to wearing various production hats. Most notably in the last three years Orlagh has been the musical director for ‘Macnas’. Writing and performing scores for the tremendous shows that have been coming out of the Macnas traps. The June 25th show will be the first outing for many of Orlagh’s new songs, a treat is in store for all.
Tickets for this show are very limited early booking is advisable.
