The Breath

An evening of heartfelt songs and beautiful music from folk sensation The Breath.Ríoghnach Connolly and Stuart McCallum are the creative heart of The Breath. And for them, it’s all about the song.Connolly writes in a stream of poetic consciousness giving rise to honest, personal, heartfelt songs. They are as likely to touch on childhood summers and first love as cultural dislocation, post-colonial injustices and grief. But it’s her deeply soulful, utterly engaging voice – whether delicate and hushed or powerful and gutsy – that stops you in your tracks. This is coupled with Stuart’s understated brilliance and their exquisitely crafted songs. The result is an experience of extraordinary emotional depth.Land Of My Other, the third album by The Breath, is a place of memories and melodies, lyricism and lore. It's a place of sunlight, faerie-tales and rowan trees, of grief, incarceration and thunder in darkness. It's a place where ancestral trauma and colonial injustice meet blazing pride, romantic self-rule and hands held in a circle in the sea.
