In a world of shuttered music venues and snatched-away opportunities, Ireland’s music community continues to defy the odds – with young, emerging artists defiantly rising above seemingly insurmountable challenges, and flying the flag for their country. This bold energy, independent ethos and genre-defying talent is evident across our list of Hot For 2021 Irish Acts – which features artists from every corner of Ireland.
One of the many phenomenal talents to emerge from Dublin’s busking community in recent years, 16-year-old Saibh Skelly has garnered a major online fanbase – with nearly 66,000 followers on Instagram alone. Her YouTube videos and Instagram livestreams, featuring both covers and originals, are hugely popular. If her talent is effectively nurtured, she’ll be huge.
Hear: ‘Do You Love Her’.
Watch: Her live-streamed gig from The Sound House on YouTube.
