Homebeat are delighted to present a very special show with one of our most treasured contemporary artists Maria Somerville in the wonderful Project Arts Centre.
Maria Somerville draws on conventional folk forms alongside post-punk, traditional Irish motifs, starry eyed pop and hypnotic drones to create wholly original music that is borne of her roots in Connemara, Western Ireland.
Her debut album All My People (self-released on 1 March and distributed by Rush Hour), channels the wilderness of the Irish landscape through dense, ethereal soundscapes, bare boned percussion and a heady electronic undertow, interspersed with ghostly vocals that are ever present and all encompassing, like crystalline glints of sunshine peeking through dark stormy clouds.
Her enigmatic and enthralling live show comes in both solo and band shape (born of ties with fellow Irish mavericks Davy Kehoe and the Wah Wah Wino crew).
Support on the night is from celebrated Irish composer and sound artist Linda Buckley.
