Christopher Somerville

Journalist Christopher has spent 25 years writing and broadcasting about country walk (and tougher hikes), life in remote rural and island communities from Scotland to Crete by the way of the Faroes, music-making in Irish pubs, festivals from Spain to Sweden, and the pleasure and delight of telling stories and weaving yarns. He is the author of the book Walking in Ireland, which covers 50 of the finest walks he has taken.

Ciara O’Neill

Singer songwriter Singer Songwriter Ciara O’Neill presents her debut EP ‘Primroses’. Showcasing her ‘plaintive, haunting vocals and watertight confidence’ her beautiful songs ‘get you right in the heart’. Hailing from the darker edge of the folk spectrum, the tried and tested Singer Songwriter path has been given a breath of haunting melancholy with this four track EP. Enhanced by Ciara’s ‘Sultry Irish lilt’ and ‘complex and subtle playing’ it is not to be missed. Written throughout a few solitary months in the heart of the countryside, Ciara immersed herself in the sounds of the forests and rivers near her home and wrote ‘Primroses’ with each song paying testament to her raw talent.
