'Backstage at Mike The Pies' is produced and presented by Megan O’Donoghue, and features some of the brilliant artists who have played socially-distanced shows at Mike The Pies during lockdown.
Hot Press' hugely successful podcast, Backstage At Mike the Pies, continues – with internationally acclaimed Dublin singer-songwriter Sorcha Richardson featuring on Episode 7.
Sorcha's Choice Prize-nominated debut record First Prize Bravery made waves in Ireland and across the pond in the UK. One of Ireland's most exciting exports, Richardson and Megan discuss early influences, Sorcha's first band, writing 'Out The Gaff' with the Denise Chaila and the narolane records crew, and much more.
Since the beginning of lockdown, Mike The Pies has hosted a series of special gigs, run with the support of the Department of Tourism, Culture, the Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, as part of the Live Performance Support scheme. As part of the Backstage at Mike The Pies podcast series, host Megan O'Donoghue chats to some of the exciting up-and-coming artists who have graced the stage of the legendary Listowel venue, which has built up a reputation as one of Ireland's most beloved music halls.
