Saint Sister, formed in November 2014, is the creation of Morgan MacIntyre and Gemma Doherty. Their music draws from early Celtic harp traditions, 60s folk and electronic pop to create ‘atmosfolk'—a mix of soulful vocal harmonies, dreamy synth and electro-acoustic harp. 

Following an early performance on Irish national television, one of their first gigs saw them open the stage for Arcade Fire’s Will Butler. Their debut EP ‘Madrid’, recorded with Alex Ryan (bassist with Hozier), was released in November 2015. Having received incredible support on Irish radio, the lead single was championed by Huw Stephens and Phil Taggart, and went on to be playlisted on BBC Radio 1 and on German national radio, 1Live. 

Since the release, the band have toured extensively throughout Ireland, the UK and Germany. They made their US debut in March with multiple showcases at SXSW, and have had notable performances in Paris and Warsaw. Numerous festival appearances include BBC Introducing at Glastonbury, Latitude, Electric Picnic, Longitude, The Great Escape, Reeperbahn Festival, and an impressive live TV performance on RTE's Other Voices. 

Following two sold out headline shows in Dublin, Saint Sister play their first headline Irish tour this November, before supporting Mutual Benefit across the UK.

SLOW MOVING CLOUDS are a Dublin-based band who combine roots in Nordic and Irish traditional music with minimalist and experimental influences to create a sound unlike anything you’ve heard before.

Their 2015 debut Os brought together traditional and contemporary melodies, evocative Nordic vocals, and layered string soundscapes of cello, violin and nyckelharpa. The recording drew comparisons to Icelandic post-rock legends Sigur Ros and Irish traditional supergroup The Gloaming. Os was hailed as ‘rich, intriguing and accomplished’ Jim Carroll (The Irish Times); and ‘emotive, euphoric and unique music’ Steve Hunt (fRoots).

In 2016 Slow Moving Clouds created a new score for Teac Damsa’s Swan Lake / Loch na hEala, an adaptation of the ballet rooted in the Irish midlands. The work premiered to critical and popular acclaim at the 2016 Dublin Theatre Festival, with Slow Moving Clouds’ music described as ‘a perfect mix of the earthy and the ethereal’ Fintan O’Toole (The Irish Times). It was awarded Best Production at the 2017 Irish Times Theatre Awards and is currently touring internationally.
