Live Music

Saturday 9th, 6.30pm, The Regal Cinema

The festival will conclude with a live music set headlined by LAOISE.

LAOISE is a 22-year-old electro-pop artist hailing from Galway. She writes dreamy, ambitious and frank pop songs about relationships and heartbreak, often with darker, moodier, introspective lyrics juxtaposed with upbeat electro and synth production. LAOISE records, produces and releases her music completely independently. RTÉ 2FM Radio named her a Rising Artist of 2018, which was followed in 2019 with a nomination for Song of the Year at the RTÉ Choice Music Prize. Drawing comparisons from UK press to iconic Swedish alt-pop artist Robyn, LAOISE will be releasing new music in late March and has an impressive run of festival dates both here and abroad this summer.

Willow Xena, a talented young singer songwriter from East Cork, will also be performing. She has been writing songs and performing for a number of years now and organised a fund raising concert in 2017 at the Ballymaloe Grainstore featuring local musical talent. Willow Xena has performed on Newstalk, on the big shed at the Ballymaloe Litfest and played support for Brian Kennedy in the Grainstore.
