Niamh Hyland and Michael Brunnock, with fiddler Deni Bonet’s accompaniment, shared two of their upcoming original releases “Snowmen” and “Live to Love” at AWoW’s Anniversary Showcase at The Cell Theatre. In our lives we often behave as if many of the plans and the goals we have are destined to have permanent results. We hold on to the idea that our plans are permanent and important. Life shows us that these thoughts and intentions have transient results – much like building ‘Snowmen.'”
“Live to Love” is about being present, reliving an intimate moment in time and being grateful that you experienced it. As a duo, Niamh and Michael’s tight, intuitive harmonies meld their voices into a dreamy singular connected sound. The songs place the listener in a familiar story being retold.
Poignant and beautiful.
