Indie rising star Naoise Roo, as both a songwriter and a performer, is undeniably a powerful force. The past two years have seen her audience grow and grow with a swath of electrifying live shows and the release of her debut album ‘Lilith’ which was met with faultless critical acclaim. She deals with themes of heartbreak, desire and female identity and stylistically ranges from powerfully emotional indie rock to delicate ambient electronic, visceral hard grunge to wryly flirtatious chanson – while still remaining strikingly unique. "Full of drama and unpredictableness with vibes of Nick Drake and Patti Smith'" - Rigsy, Across The Line, BBC Radio Ulster.
"Naoise Roo's deep and powerful vocals are stunning, and album 'Lilith' is a dark and multi layered listen"
Support from Natalia Beylis and Willie Stewart (DJ Set). From 1980s Bay Area art punk to current Senegalise guitar trance, the one thing all this night's tunes will have in common is that they will make you want to shimmy. Expect to hear selections that we've gathered from hours spent digging through vinyl and cassettes in specialty music shops, junk markets and second hand havens. Based in Leitirm, Natalia Beylis and Willie Stewart have both been obsessing over music since benign tall enough to reach the needle on the record player. They play in the groups Woven Skull, Divil A' Bit and Three Eyed Makara as well as in solo projects. The duo run Hunters Moon which puts on experimental music and art events in Leitrim and beyond. Recently they have begun a DJ mix series called Maghreb Sharit which compiles tracks from cassette tapes they have bought on their travels in North Africa.
