The New Folk with Ciara Sidine & Karrie

Dublin singer-songwriter Ciara Sidine'e sound has been described as 'Americana with an unmistakably Celtic feel to its poetic lyrics and confident vocals'. Her much-anticipated new album Unbroken Line, follows on from her successful debut Shadow Road Shining. She says of her new release that 'the title theme is about the search for continuity and connection in a world where that can easily feel obscured or broken'. This is an artist unafraid to tackle the big themes of struggle and hopes, both personal, political and creative. At once playful and politically brave in her writing, Sidine's work has been likened to that of Gillian Welch, Maria McKee and Alison Krauss, but the singer-songwriter is very much, and her show at TradFest 2018 promises to be a remarkable showcase for this vital new talent.

Currently working on her third album with guitarist and producer Jimmy Smyth, Karrie was something of a latecomer to the music industry , waiting until the grand old age of thirty four to write her first song, 'Stay Away'. Karrie trained horses for 15 years plus in her home Co. Kerry and during the years she spent breaking and schooling young horses, music was a vital companion. When the recession hit and closed the buisiness she looked inward to find her muse. The youngest of nine in a music loving family, Karrie was exposed to the music tastes of her older siblings including Joni Mitchell, Rickie Lee Jones, Tom Waits and more. She was in good company. One to watch!
