ABOUT

*

born on ‘first cuckoo day’ catherine started life as a bookworm and wove a cocoon of creative endeavour about her, emerging as a song writer and flying north to ireland where she is currently nesting.

. . .

my latest release is my new single ‘Lí Ban‘ informed by irish myth and wild water ~ partly recorded inside mermaid’s cave, on the north coast of ireland.

my third album ‘sea star‘ is a handful of songs, sounds and improv from 2010-2013 about all sorts of loss.

this also includes recordings from the sea cave, improvised with a flute player.

my previous album ‘lost and found‘ is a nine song story, self produced with musical friends on cello, harp, violin and double bass.

several tracks from this album have been played on BBC and independent radio, and the first and last track were chosen to soundtrack a BBC TV documentary ‘love in a day’.

in 2014 i released my debut album ‘sweetcorn‘ and opened for diane cluck (u.s.), raising holy sparks (ireland), sharron kraus (england) and local artists pat dam smyth and (poet) sinead morrissey

. . .

i have also co-written two touring productions for children, ‘down in the garden’ for sticky fingers and ‘the butterfly and caterpillar’ for young at art

previous to this i released a small yellow book of words and pictures ‘hop in(to the funshine)’ with lapwing press, launching the limited run of hand-bound books in dublin with poetry ireland, and exhibiting the paintings in belfast.

. . .

i record at home, in a house at the bottom of a hill between the rowan, the wild rose and the elder tree
