Fresh from a sold out Button Factory, alt-folk artist Ailbhe Reddy joins April Sounds next month with support from Kilkenny’s Elise at the Medieval Mile Museum on Sunday, April 10th.
Ailbhe Reddy has an incredible talent for crafting intensely moving tunes. An artist who finds strength in sensitivity and embraces the full power of a moment. On her debut album Personal History, the Irish artist blurs the boundaries between personal and universal experiences to strike emotional chords with her relatable lyricism and uniquely tender vocals.
Reddy recently performed the Choice Prize nominated song of the year ‘Home’ by Elaine Mai and Mary-Kate Geraghty with guests Loah and Sinead White in Vicar Street.
Joined on the night by Kilkenny singer-songwriter Elise. Elise’s songwriting comes from a collection of personal experiences. The core of her songwriting is about love, loss and growth and finding the light in dark times. Her music combines her folky fingerstyle guitar playing with a production of synth sounds and a heavy rhythm section of bass and drums. This runs parallel to her soft but powerful voice which has the power to draw the listeners in and immerse them into her world and her stories she needs
Proceeds from tickets go to the Red Cross and Unicef who are running emergency appeals. Tickets priced at €12 and available from Rollercoaster Records www.rollercoasterrecordskk.com
April Sounds are delivered locally by Kilkenny County Council Arts Office and funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport & Media.
