Bronagh Gallagher – Live at The Purty Kitchen
Saturday, 10th August
One of the purest, clearest talents I know – a fabulous singer, bursting with raw Irish soul. Striking and original songs and an effortlessly brilliant band”– Brian Eno
“Bronagh Gallagher’ is a superb recording artist. She nods repeatedly in the direction of the ‘60s and early ‘70s to marvellous effect with the band conjuring a delicious gospel feel under Gallagher’s gripping vocal. This suitably eponymous record is a triumph for Bronagh Gallagher herself.” – Jackie Hayden, Hot Press
“Swaggering like Carole King in her golden years” – *** Q
