Niamh Regan ‘In the Meantime’ EP Launch, The Grand Social, Dublin, Friday 4th March
Niamh Regan is a critically acclaimed songwriter from county Galway. Released in the midst of the pandemic in 2020, her debut album Hemet announced her arrival as one of the most distinctive songwriters in Ireland today. Earning nominations for both the RTE Folk Awards’ and the Choice Awards’ Album of the Year, the album received soaring praise, and led to performances on Fanning at Whelan’s, The Late Late Show, Other Voices, and La Blogothèque.
Following on from an enchanting sold-out show at Whelan’s last November, Niamh will celebrate the launch of her new EP ‘In the Meantime’, Friday 4th March, at The Grand Social, Dublin. The incredible fellow Galwegian, Seba Safe, will warm the stage, and Niamh will be joined by some very special surprise guests for her set.
Niamh says “This EP is a collection of four songs that I wrote during the first + second lockdown here in Ireland. And I guess it centres on themes around everyday life, feeling stuck, family, love, loneliness, loyalty and escape.”
A natural storyteller, Regan’s songs are windows into her world, snapshots of the intimacy of everyday life. With her singular mastery, Regan’s songwriting draws us into the intricate details of everyday life and elevates them into something universal.
“Creating the EP was a little bit of magic for me and also felt like an escape. I’m so grateful to have had some stellar musicians bring it alive in the studio and to work alongside producer Alex Borwick again. All thanks to the Elevate Bursary and the International Galway Arts Festival.”
