Odi is an Irish singer-songwriter whose music combines folk, acoustic, pop, rock and indie. Odi played her first gig four years ago, since that time she has supported Eleanor McEvoy, Brian Kennedy and Seth Lakeman. She was tipped as one of the top five artists to watch in 2010 by MySpace/Vodafone and her debut album Maslow's Songbook was playlisted on Irish national radio station RTE1 to great critical acclaim.
"Bursting with top quality vocals and strong songs. One listen will never be quite enough". Maverick

County Sligo's finest export, Dervish have been at the forefront of Irish traditional music for two decades. One of the best-loved Irish bands, they won a huge swell of new fans last summer with acclaimed performances at a string of major UK folk festivals. Fronted by the entrancing Cathy Jordan on vocals - still regarded by many as the most distinctive voice in Irish music today - the band create a richly complex sound, full of energy, intricacy and subtlety.
"This is true craftsmanship." Tonder Festival, Denmark

Wednesday 4 May, 8pm
Martin Simpson
Tickets £16.50
In the last few years, guitarist Martin Simpson has been busier, more successful and more visible than ever before in his long career. His 2007 release Prodigal Son was nominated for 5 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, winning Album of the Year. 2009 saw the release of a new CD, True Stories, to wide critical acclaim. Simpson's songs are beautifully written and at times most unusual in form, telling true stories and dealing with themes of love, loss, home and much more.
