Cormac O’Caoimh is a singer-songwriter and classical guitarist whose intimate vocals and exquisite guitar playing is attracting the attention of musicians and music lovers alike. He’s been picking up some well-known admirers along the way including Ron Sexsmith and Tom Robinson from the BBC.
Stuart Wilde’s music on the other hand is unique, dark, heartfelt and full of tender stories of lost love, shadow worlds, dirty dishes, the sea and crows. His shows are always thought provoking and engaging as he bangs out his blues on a guitar and stomp box. Stuart’s style of music is totally unique, quirky and atmospheric. Any fan of Tom Waits or Leonard Cohen should check out this album
