Delighted to see my musical work mentioned in this great article at Bandcamp Daily.

My next concert, and this one is something rather new and special. As A4 Sounds put it: "we're also delighted to be joined by Niamh O'Rourke, who'll be following in the footsteps of the old Seanachaí with a short performance piece that includes recitation of Samhain related stories from Irish Mythology, accompanied by live music from Brian Conniffe."
