The Hot Press Lockdown Sessions has entered a new phase with the launch of The Y&E Series – supported by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
The Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' The Y&E Series continues with a performance from Roisin El Cherif – streaming live on the Hot Press Instagram tonight, July 5, at 7.30pm.
Irish-Palestinian singer Roisin El Cherif draws influence from Tracy Chapman, Stevie Nicks and Daughter to craft a sound that blurs the lines between folk, country and indie-pop. Following the release of her acclaimed Glass House EP in 2018, she returned this year with her moving new single ‘Cross Your Mind’.
Continuing tonight with Roisin El Cherif, The Y&E Series is shining a light on some of the best new and emerging talent that Ireland has to offer in 2020 – with 40 acts joining Hot Press on Instagram for special live performances across 40 consecutive days, thanks to the support of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
Watch Roisin El Cherif tonight, July 5, as part of the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' The Y&E Series – live on the Hot Press Instagram (@hotpressmagazine) at 7.30pm.
