Branwen in Concert with support from Jocose Bird
September 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm£7.50
An imaginary horse enthusiast with a foot in both worlds, this is Branwen’s first solo project.
Having spent five years in the acclaimed experimental folk act Twin Headed Wolf (praised as “Glastonbury’s most special festival find” by Spectator Magazine) Branwen has just released her first solo Album. First in New Orleans in April and in Ireland in May 2019.
As an award nominated performance artist, (RDS Graduate Award 2017) sculptor, puppeteer, writer of surreal visual plays and a lively adventurer she gathers many of these strands together in her live performances.
Branwen is currently performing with a pair of wonderful musicians, renowned Bass Clarinetist Deirdre O Leary and the wonderful strings of Nicholas Cooper. The live show involves an array of unmusical objects employed as instruments, as well as actual instruments including loop pedals, banjo, guitar and harmonium. Expect a to see show woven with storytelling, poetry, occasional puppetry, an intricate knowledge of folklore and a dash of the surreal.
She has performed widely across Europe in Norway, Holland, France, Germany, Ireland and the UK. She has supported acts such as Amiina and Ronan O Snodaigh, played festivals including Another Love Story and Arcadian Fields and has great plans in the works for the coming months.
