Hailing from Downpatrick, critically acclaimed artist Brigid O’Neill is a genre-spanning songsmith whose evergreen music appeals to multiple generations. An immensely gifted story teller, her latest album ‘Touchstone’ is crammed with confidence, charisma and choruses you’ll be whistling for months and sees her effortlessly weave elements of folk, country and jazz into her relatable tales of happiness, heartbreak and the human condition. Brigid has performed everywhere from the world-famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville to the iconic Grand Opera House in Belfast, writing with grammy award-winning writers along the way. Her musical story is littered with accolades, this year receiving the prestigious PRS Foundation Award to showcase at Folk Alliance International in Montreal.
