SAINT SISTER+ ROSIE CARNEY
Saint Sister, formed in November 2014, is the new project from Morgan MacIntyre and Gemma Doherty. Their music draws from early Celtic harp traditions, 60s folk and electronic pop to create ‘atmosfolk’—a mix of soulful vocal harmonies, dreamy synth and electro-acoustic harp.
Following their debut performance on Irish television, they opened for Arcade Fire’s Will Butler in Whelan’s. April saw them support San Fermin (Downtown records), and tour Ireland with Dublin band Spies. In August, the band entered the studio for the first time to record their debut EP with Alex Ryan (bassist with Hozier), which was released on November 13th on Trout Records. Over the coming weeks they commence two Irish tours with O Emperor and Wyvern Lingo. They finish 2015 with their first London showcase, and play their first US performance at SXSW 2016.

Plus support from ROSIE CARNEY
Rosie Carney is a 20 year old singer songwriter from Hampshire, UK now living in Donegal, Ireland. She gathers inspiration from the beautfully rugged landscape that surrounds her, along with her ability to disect and make others stories into beautifully heartfelt songs.
“I find something quite wonderful about being vulnerable. I think it’s such an important aspect of human nature, to allow our hearts to feel and break to their full capacity. I think it’s so important to allow yourself the freedom to express how you’re really feeling, be it through song, poetry or any form of art. When I was 10, I started composing my own classical pieces on the piano which allowed me to express how I was feeling at that current time. That’s then when I figured it was okay to sing about how myself and others felt.”
