First up this Friday, July 14 is Krea (A.K.A. Karen Cowley from Wyvern Lingo), supported by Tara Kennedy (Aliens In Caves).
It’s been a busy year for Krea, the moniker taken on by Irish singer-songwriter Karen Cowley, who after taking a pause from her band Wyvern Lingo, was awarded the Music Bursary by the Arts Council, as well as a residency in Paris at the Centre Culturel Irlandais, where she spent last August writing songs for her solo EP.
Krea is no stranger to the Irish music scene, having released two no. 1 albums as one third of indie band Wyvern Lingo and collaborated with household Irish names such as Denise Chaila and Hozier on his debut album duet, ‘In A Week’. She has also performed with Lisa Hannigan, Gemma Hayes and Wallis Bird.
A vocalist, pianist and now novice harpist, Krea is very excited to step out on her own with a collection of songs.
There’s a fantastic line up for the following Friday’s until August 25:
July 21: Mide Houlihan (The Kates) with support Patrick Noel.
July 28: Paddy Dennehy with support Sean Ó Haodha.
August 4: George Houston with support Nick Hames.
