A timeless & gifted storyteller who transports the listener to strange, magical, otherworldly places. Frequently compared to the likes of Julie Fowlis, Lisa Hannigan, Ane Brun and Joni Mitchell. Her first recording “Catch Me” as heard on JohnnyCoppin’s BBC Radio 2 Folk show was described by Irish Radio International as “Delicious music: A massage of the heart, a whisper to the soul”.
