Songlines was established in December 2012 by Miles Graham with the help of Dervish front woman, Cathy Jordon who hosted the very first event. Its aim is to provide a platform for the insanely talented songwriters in the northwest of Ireland and beyond, to perform in a listening environment, showcasing their songwriting ability. The performances have to date been outstanding!
The format of the event is in a one room environment, consisting of 4 small stages in a circle, with a host introducing a number of singer/songwriters in rotation (A ‘Later with Jules’ type stage setup). The talent and standard has been to the highest level and in previous nights it has produced international bloggers sharing their experience online with Fáilte Ireland and social media sites.
Singer/ Songwriters to perform over coming events include: Charlie McGettigan, Miles Graham, SIVE, Kathleen Turner, Chanele McGuinness, Jessie Solange, ITM, Kate O’Callaghan, Glenn Cal and more to be announced.
