An imaginary horse enthusiast, fine art graduate and song maker in every sense of the word, Branwen has begun a solo project under her own name. Having spent the previous 5 years performing as one half of the celebrated art folk duo Twin Headed Wolf, (praised as "Glastonbury's most special festival find" by Spectator Magazine) Branwen has expanded her creative world to be a project with many collaborators and many manifestations.
As an Award nominated (RSD Graduate Award) multi-disciplinary artist and musician she is a very inventive act to behold. Her shows are woven with storytelling, poetry, occasional puppetry and an intricate knowledge of folklore and old stories. She is a well known singer in Dublin's traditional singing circles and she maintains her own unique flavour within this world. Her own songs are influenced by rituals, objects, mythology and her imagination. Expect well formed songs, loop pedals, interesting vocal techniques and unmusical objects as instruments.
This her first solo Album. Recorded by Simon O'Reilly, in West Clare the album is a fruitful collaboration with renowned clarinetist Deirdre O Leary and the exquisite Nicholas Cooper on violin. The full band will perform on the night in what promises to be an intimate evening of music.
