Pioneering her own brand of cosmic folk, Bróna McVittie both deftly reimagines traditional folk and crafts her own nature-inspired songs. Her live show features vocals, electroharp, guitars and electronics. She launches her 3rd album The Woman in the Moon in October.

Her debut solo album We Are the Wildlife, released in January 2018, earned her a string of four star reviews from MOJO, Uncut, The Guardian and The Independent garnering high praise from critics including Nigel Williamson and the late Andy Gill.

The album’s single Under the Pines was featured in Lauren Laverne’s best-of-2018 list. And before her WOMAD appearance in 2019 Bróna was interviewed live by Cerys Matthews on her BBC 6 Music festival highlights show.

Her second album The Man in the Mountain, released in September 2020, immediately scored the much-coveted Folk Album of the Month spot in The Guardian. Later that year Jude Rogers ranked it 4th in her 10 Best Folk Albums of 2020. In her words “You’re put in the place of a bird navigating wide open landscapes, absorbing light, space and air. This is music that takes you on its wing, and gives you fresh visions”.

No.5 in The Guardian’s 10 Best Folk Albums of 2021 and No. 4 in The Guardian’s 10 Best Folk Albums of 2020

★★★★ MOJO :”McVittie’s voice is clear, hypnotic and uncannily timeless, floating between Broadcast’s Trish Keenan and Clannad’s Moya Brennan.

IRISH NEWS : “It happens less and less but there are those magic occasions when you hear a piece of music for the first time and you suddenly stop what you’re doing and just listen.

★★★★ The Guardian : JUDE ROGERS’S FOLK ALBUM OF THE MONTH (September 2020) “You’re put in the place of a bird navigating wide open landscapes, absorbing light, space and air. This is music that takes you on its wing, and gives you fresh visions.”

Support: Chalk Horse

Chalk Horse Music play acoustically live; their own songs inspired by local stories, myth and place, alongside traditional folk.

‘We were quietly blown away earlier this year by Chalk Horse Music, who combine folk tradition with bold reimaginings and come out with something completely unmatched in the English folk scene. Their songs draw inspiration from Sussex and the Downs; their music stuns.’ Folkroom

‘Some days you wake up not knowing what the day will bring. You check into Facebook and a friend has suggested a track so beautiful it brings tears to your eyes.’ Simon Emmerson
