Heart of the World Folk Club: Brona McVittie & Friends
We are delighted that our first artist is Brona McVittie, whose new single ‘Green Man’ is taking the Folk world by storm.
Decorated with an array of four star reviews singer-songwriter and musician Brona McVittie is deftly steering traditional folk into the 21st century with her recently launched debut solo album - a deep reflection on the interconnectedness of things natural and manmade, an album of duality and dichotomy shaped as much by natural sonic patterning as by human patterns of behaviour — inspired by rural and urban scapes alike.
Brona returned to her native County Down after several years in London, during which time she performed with numerous bands at venues ranging from the 12 Bar Club to the Roundhouse. She was musical director for Celtic acapella outfit Rún, lead singer and harper for the London Lasses and briefly even ran her own folk club. In a variety of guises, she has graced the stages of numerous festivals including Glastonbury, Celtic Connections and Cambridge Folk Festival. In 2019 she performed with her trio at Dublin’s National Concert Hall, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, London’s Kings Place and Womad festival. She champions folk songs and tales from her homeland both in her own work and as leader of the Mourne Community Choir.
