Described by Ralph McLean of BBC Radio Ulster as “A great songwriter with a voice that can break your heart at 30 paces” Brigid O’Neill from Co. Down is a genre-spanning songsmith whose evergreen music appeals to multiple generations.

The last few years have seen the critically acclaimed artist earn a formidable reputation as one of the most versatile, unique and fearless storytellers on the island. Her latest album Touchstone sees her effortlessly weave elements of folk, country and jazz into relatable tales of happiness, heartbreak and the human condition, with recently released singles Leaving and Prayers from her highly anticipated follow-up album, receiving great reviews.

Brigid has performed everywhere from the world-famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville to the iconic Grand Opera House in Belfast, writing with Grammy award writers along the way. She is a recipient of numerous Arts Council and Music Industry awards and was long-listed for the Glastonbury Festival 2020 Emerging Talent Competition and Northern Ireland Music Prize 2021.

Some time ago she had the idea to write songs about special buildings in Belfast and commissioned by the Ulster Architectural Heritage Society, the project grew to include Derry and Armagh. Intangible Heritage a trilogy of songs from this very special project, recorded live at Sonic Visuals Studio, following an award and invitation from the British Council to perform at the online UK-China Festival of Contemporary Culture 2021.
