Following on from their stunning performance at Dublin’s Christchurch last year, Saint Sister make their highly anticipated return to the live circuit this June for their biggest show to date – Live at The National Concert Hall.
Formed in November 2014, Saint Sister is the creation of Morgan MacIntyre and Gemma Doherty. Their music draws from early Celtic harp traditions, 60s folk and electronic pop to create ‘atmosfolk'—a mix of soulful vocal harmonies, dreamy synth and electro-acoustic harp.
Following an early performance on Irish national television, one of their first gigs saw them open the stage for Arcade Fire’s Will Butler. Their debut EP Madrid, recorded with Alex Ryan (bassist with Hozier), was released in November 2015.
Having received incredible support on Irish radio, the lead single was championed by Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart, and went on to be playlisted on BBC Radio 1 and on German national radio, 1Live.
Their follow up single "Tin Man" came out as part of Communion’s Singles Club in December 2016 and received continued support from national radio, both at home and abroad. Since their formation, the band have toured extensively throughout Ireland, the UK and Germany. They made their US debut in March 2016 with multiple showcases at SXSW, and have had notable performances in Paris and Warsaw. Numerous festival appearances include BBC Introducing at Glastonbury, Latitude, Electric Picnic, Longitude, The Great Escape, Reeperbahn Festival, and an impressive live TV performance on RTE's Other Voices.
2017 has already seen the band perform at Eurosonic, as well as support Lisa Hannigan at a sold out London show in the Roundhouse.
Saint Sister will perform live at The National Concert hall on June 7. Tickets priced at €17.50 go on sale this Friday from www.nch.ie or by calling (01) 417 0000.
