Description: A journey from hushed storytelling to uplifting anthems, Ríoghnach Connolly & Stuart McCallum present Manchester’s unique take on alt-folk. Connolly writes the only way she knows how; a stream of poetic consciousness giving rise to heartfelt songs as likely to touch on childhood summers and first love as cultural dislocation, post-colonial injustices and grief. But it’s her deeply soulful, utterly engaging voice —whether delicate and hushed or powerful and gutsy— coupled with Stuart’s understated brilliance and their exquisitely crafted songs, that give The Breath such emotional depth.
