Powerful social issues are the core of Dublin singer Ciara Sidine’s stunning new album, Unbroken Line.
There’s a fierce tenderness in Unbroken Line, the second album by Dublin-based artist Ciara Sidine. While her first record, Shadow Road Shining, showcased an exceptionally gifted folk singer-songwriter, her second offering sees the artist mining her compassionate nature for creative inspiration.

“There was a documentary called Sex In A Cold Climate,” she recalls, “about the survivors of Mother and Baby Homes.

They were taken from them against their will, but they had never let go.
