As part of our nightly YouTube series celebrating Van Morrison's 75th birthday, Ciaran Lavery performs 'Country Fair'.
Ciaran Lavery's sophomore record Let Bad In saw him rack up millions of Spotify streams. His language is that of heartbreaking melodies, gentle acoustic guitar and deep, cavernous sonics; he has a sound to get lost in. His latest album Plz stay bb was released to critical acclaimed earlier this summer.
