Where You’re From: Altamuskin, Co. Tyrone

Last gig you attended: Anthony Toner in the Sunflower Folk Club

Summer or Winter and why? Winter- I love the crisp icy mornings and getting to wrap up cosy! I love snow as well but only to look out at!

What are you listening to right now: Brandi Carlile’s New album “By the way I forgive you.”

Worst song you’ve ever heard? “I’ve got a song that will get on your nerves.” It does just that and doesn’t leave my head for days!

Favourite venue: The Beacon Theatre in New York- special memories of visiting this theatre a few years back to see Glen Hansard perform and getting to meet him backstage after- Great memories!

Biggest musical influence: Glen Hansard

Digital music, CDs or vinyl? I have to say I am still buying CDs so much- I love having the physical copy and as i’m driving a lot much for gigs they are so handy to have at hand. I do have a record player for my small vinyl collection too but have to say CDs get more use!

The best thing about Northern Ireland: The ever growing, ever diverse music scene!

What would you buy with your last £10? A few scratch cards to hopefully get some more cash back and a Boojum!

Bronagh Broderick headlines at Songwright in the Sunflower Bar on Wednesday 4th April 2018. You can purchase tickets here.
