Co. Down award-winning singer songwriter Brigid O'Neill is described as “a little bit of Mary Black and Cara Dillon, with some Emmylou Harris with Alison Krauss thrown in”. Brigid O’Neill’s star has been steadily in the ascent since the release of her debut EP ‘Arrivals and Departures’, followed by the insistently catchy single ‘Don’t Make me Go to Town’.
Plaudits have continued to rain down with the release of her remarkable new album ‘Touchstone’. Fans and critics alike have been drawn, not only by the sweet recipe of country-folk and blues blended with a delicious dash of jazz that has become her trademark ‘sound’, but also by the rapid development of an artist who has just set out on her journey.
In the last twelve months alone, she has sold out shows throughout NI, also opening for and singing alongside stars like Eddi Reader, Duke Special, Frances Black and Mary Coughlan.
“Brigid is a great songwriter with a voice that can break your heart at 30 paces.” - Ralph McLean BBC Radio Ulster
