Niamh Dunne (from Beoga) Solo Album Launch
Niamh Dunne will perform in the ICC London on Friday 25th November to launch her new album, "Tides".
The accomplished singer and fiddle player, Niamh Dunne (a founding member of famous Irish band, Beoga), has released her first solo project of self-penned songs. The new album – ‘Tides’ will be launched with a special concert at ICC Hammersmith.
This is Niamh’s first solo project in ten years and her first personal album. ‘Tides’ comes in 2 halves; one based on story songs inspired by traditional Irish ballads and the other half a singer-songwriter style.
The second half features introspective songs that look at lived experience, feminism, family, history and connection. Both sides of the album are a reflection on Niamh’s life as a musician – from her traditional roots with Traveller family, The Dunnes, right up to writing with contemporary acts like Foy Vance and Ed Sheeran, in recent years. This album is a chance to lend her own voice, with all its contradictions and nuances, to the musical landscape.
After Beoga’s six albums, a shortlist for a Grammy and numerous international tours, Niamh is no stranger to reaching a wider international audience as a result of a chance encounter with Ed Sheeran, Foy Vance and Johnny McDaid. This led to the band co-writing Ed’s massive hit ‘Galway Girl’ and ‘Nancy Mulligan’, from his album Divide. They also performed as Ed Sheeran’s only special guest on his headlining Glastonbury 2017 performance and supported him on his record-breaking Irish stadium tour in 2018.
Doors: 7.30pm; Starts: 8pm
