Friday Night Live, bring a bottle, sit back, relax and enjoy the best affordable live music in town!

Described by Ralph McLean of BBC Radio Ulster as “A great songwriter with a voice that can break your heart at 30 paces” Brigid O’Neill from Co. Down in NI is a genre-spanning songsmith whose evergreen music appeals to multiple generations. An immensely gifted storyteller, her latest album ‘Touchstone’ sees her effortlessly weave elements of folk, country and jazz into relatable tales of happiness, heartbreak and the human condition. Following the critical success of Touchstone, she is working on her highly anticipated follow-up album, recently releasing the first singles ‘Leaving’ and ‘Prayers': “Brigid O’Neill has a voice like a clear cut diamond. ‘Leaving’ is a stunningly beautiful song that will guarantee to stun audiences into silence at any live performance.” British Country Music Festival. 

Brigid has performed everywhere from the world-famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville to the iconic Grand Opera House in Belfast, writing with Grammy award writers along the way. She is a recipient of numerous Arts Council and Music industry awards, most recently long listed for the NI Music Prize 2021 and Glastonbury Festival Emerging Talent Competition: “Brigid O’Neill is supremely confident both musically and lyrically”
