This year’s edition of Cistin is very special. Filmed by firelight in Arthurs Pub, we invite people to enjoy this Cistin of songs and stories from the comfort of your very own Cistin.
Sinead White is the Cistin curator, MC and performer for this year. A singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist from Co Kildare whose return to solo music has been praised for revealing “more subtlety and texture in the form of ‘The World Stops Spinning.’” Nialler9.com
Sinéad will be joined by prolific singer and songwriter Gary Tiernan. The storytelling within his songs weave in and out of genres from folk, Rhythm & Blues and ballad to acoustic hip hop.
LUX ALMA is the solo project by award winning composer, musician and sound designer Alma Kelliher. Her music is sometimes contemplative, sometimes pulsing, concentrating on themes of female strength and Irish mythology, all wrapped in a dreamy electro aesthetic with Alma's soaring vocal at its core.
Churning the cauldron of human emotion – from joy to delight, from grief to bitterness, from faith to utter despair, Tríona Ní Dhuibhir sings from a place of uncompromising truth, delivering the rarest, most beautiful sounds.
