We are delighted to present Saint Sister as part of the Nashville in Belfast week of events, taking place across the city, from Saturday 28 April – Monday 7 May 2018, dedicated to Nashville, the music city of America.
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.
2016’s ‘Tin Man’ came out as part of Communion’s Singles Club and received continued support from national radio, both at home and abroad. The track was nominated for song of the year by the Choice Music Prize and the band named "Best Irish Band" in 2016 by the readers of the Irish Times. ices.
Since their formation, the band have toured extensively throughout Europe. They made their US debut in March 2016 with multiple showcases at SXSW, and have had notable appearances at numerous festivals including BBC Introducing at Glastonbury, Latitude, Electric Picnic, Longitude, The Great Escape, Reeperbahn Festival. 2017 saw the band headline several tours of Europe, including a show at The National Concert Hall, Dublin. In September the band opened for The National in the Cork Opera house.
