Daylight Music marks St Patrick’s Day by opening with Brona McVittie. She’s an exciting new singer and harpist, who’ll take you on a journey through traditional folk ballads and her original compositions, shaped equally by the urban fringes of London and the great landscapes of Mourne.
Lydian Collective are an exciting 4-piece instrumental group formed by composer / producer Aaron Wheeler (aka Laszlo) and fellow producer and guitarist Todd Baker, with drummer Sophie Alloway, and Ida Hollis on bass. Their refreshing brand of original fusion-based music—rich in harmony and groove—has earned over 1.2 million YouTube views.
Having enjoyed international fame and success as the front man and principle songwriter with The Thrills, Conor Deasy’s returning to the stage with a yet-to-be-named solo project, and a debut album, at the absolute peak of his songwriting powers. This will be Conor's very first live show as a solo artist—and will feature a collection of exquisitely crafted new songs—so don’t miss the opportunity to see this extraordinary artist.

We are the Wildlife – the forthcoming debut solo LP from celebrated Irish folk chanteuse and harpist Brona McVittie – features the tracks Under The Pines and Newry Mountain which were released as a double A side single in June 2017. We are the Wildlife has been gaining coverage from Uncut, R2 and The Guardian and previous single Under The Pines received airplay from Lauren Laverne on BBC 6Music and Lynette Fay and Eve Blair on BBC Ulster.
We are the Wildlife is a psycho-geographic journey through a collection of traditional folk ballads and original compositions inspired as much by the geometries of London’s urban fringes as by the sonic phenomena within the great rural landscapes of Mourne. This mixing of traditional songs with her own compositions, and thematic ties between songs old and new, coupled with the use of traditional instruments (harp/flute/strings, etc.) against subtle electronic backdrops and innovative production techniques all adds up to a record that is heartfelt, timeless and yet pleasingly contemporary in feel, a perfect mix of new and old, on every front.
