@ Róisín Dubh (Top Bar)
Support: SELK


Sophie Coyle follows up the success of her first album with her new alt-folk release, “Cuentista”. This set of eleven original songs and two old Spanish ballads chronicles Coyle’s voyages in South America. Featuring a rich soundscape of musicians and the love of storytelling and melody Coyle is known for, this album promises to be an extremely good listen. Mellow and with a distinctly South American influenced flavour it puts one in mind of a tango bar at closing time. She will be touring “Cuentista,” or “Storyteller”, across Ireland with her band in April 2024.  The album was recorded over the COVID lock downs in the Black Mountain Studios, Co. Louth and mixed by Chris Barry (Junior Brother, The Mary Wallopers) at Ailfionn Recording Studios  with tracks arranged and performed by Glas Quartet and their founder Annmarie McGahon (Biffy Clyro).  


"Sophie Coyle’s music is gathering a reputation for a unique folk sound with a  strong narrative strain." - Irish Music Magazine



“Coyle uses softness as a weapon. She has a sharp knack for storytelling, bringing us on journeys across the world or into other realms, and these songs double up as fantastical and timeless fables Whether she’s conjuring up magic or brewing up something darker, Coyle’s voice and narrative takes charge” - Irish Times 4/5


"Her music can best be described as gothic folk, where sweet melodies contrast beautifully with her dark lyrics. What is very clear is that Coyle constructs in images. She writes her lyrics from a powerful vision." - The Next Gig review



Support Act -

SELK will be playing music from their recently released album ‘Shed the Skin’. They will be performing as a trio on the night, with Dennis Cassidy on drums and Barry Brady on guitar.

“ Drawing from a broad sonic palette SELK’s raw, unshackled songs possess an inherent power which prove mesmerising in a live environment.”  HOTPRESS
