Take a look at the upcoming line-up below:
Monday, November 30: SIIGHTS
After a string of acclaimed singles, electro-pop duo SIIGHTS released their highly anticipated debut EP earlier this year – firmly establishing them as a thrilling new force on the music scene. The group was formed by Scottish songwriter Toni Etherson and Mia Fitz, a Dublin musician who has played live with Hozier. They released their new single 'A Little Lonely' earlier this month.
Tuesday, December 1: MICHELLE GRIMES
Hailing from Limerick, multi-instrumentalist Michelle Grimes has emerged as one of the country's most promising pop acts of recent memory. With a R&B-influenced sound that's already been compared to the likes of Ariana Grande, Jessie J and Dua Lipa, the Irish star-in-the-making released her debut single 'Going Going Gone' in October.
Wednesday, December 2: MATT MCGINN
Tipped as one of the Hot Press 'Hot For 2020' acts, Co. Down folk artist Matt McGinn has spent the last few years establishing himself as one of the most talented songsmiths in Ireland, with four acclaimed albums. Over lockdown, he kept himself busy recording a new album – releasing 'Annie (Many Moons Ago)', the first single from the project, in August.
Thursday, December 3: GEORGE HUTTON
Acclaimed Irish folksinger and lyric tenor George Hutton has shared stages with Glen Hansard, Phil Coulter, Hozier, Moya Brennan and more. He launched his solo career with the release of Chapter One in 2018, followed by Home earlier this year. George recently returned with an acclaimed new single, 'The Light'.
