To add to the roll call of outstanding artists who have performed there, the Oriel Centre, Dundalk Gaol, will host a ‘Night of Song’ with two very gifted musicians DANI and Sive on Saturday 11th November 2017
Armagh musician DANI is a singer, songwriter and guitarist. Her sound is inspired by the Irish traditional melodies and showbands she was raised with, her vocals blend bluesy coarseness with lullaby softness. DANI spent 2016 facilitating music workshops and performing in Europe and the Middle East, working in the field of conflict resolution. DANI takes up a residency with the British Council in Indonesia working with Kunokini this summer and will return to the Oriel Centre with a performance drawing on her experiences in Palestine and Indonesia.
Sive is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Kildare and has been described as having “a voice that “sweeps along displaying folk and jazz nuances with the confidence of one who knows” (Eamon Carr, The Herald). Her unique sound weaves together her love for the craft of songwriting with her enthusiasm for experimentation and intricate arrangements.
Sive released her first album of original material, ‘We Are Moving’, to critical acclaim in 2012. In the years that followed she toured extensively in Ireland, The UK, Europe and New Zealand, sharing stages with the likes of Kila, John Spillane, Gemma Hayes and Mick Flannery along the way. Sive was voted viewer’s choice to appear on RTE’s Other Voices in 2014 and has also performed on TG4’s Róisín, TV3’s Ireland AM, ARTE’s Metropolis (Germany/France) and ETV’s Terevisioon (Estonia). Sive released her second studio album The Roaring Girl in May 2017 to much acclaim.
‘A Night of Song with DANI & Sive’ will be a very special performance showcasing the talents of two of Ireland’s new rising musical greats and is not to be missed. Tickets are limited in this intimate venue and early booking is advised.
