Brigid O’Neill is an award-winning singer songwriter “with a voice that can break your heart at 30 paces” according to BBC Radio Ulster’s Ralph McLean. She gained stunning momentum in her career with the launch of her latest original album Touchstone -“Magic fully captured on record” (BBC Radio Ulster) ’Impressive” (RnR Mag) “Imagery that will leave you breathless” (Musos Guide) and has since played sold-out headline shows, captivating and gathering fans wherever she plays with her blend of warm folk, blues and roots styles, in addition to performing alongside stars like Ian Archer, Paul Brady, Eddi Reader, Duke Special and Frances Black.
