Sinéad O’Connor

plus Lau

‘A fabulous reminder of O’Connor the musician. Brilliantly intense and intensely brilliant.’ Evening Standard

The high priestess of independent-minded pop is back. Sinéad O’Connor’s new album How About I Be Me (And You Be You)? plays like an encyclopedic definition of her distinctive style: songs about love and loss, hope and regret, pain and redemption, anger and justice. 

It forms the basis for an evening of consistently moving, exciting and beautiful songs, drawn not only from this latest acclaimed collection but also from the back-catalogue of her 25-year career. Backed by her new 6-piece band, Sinéad O’Connor reaffirms her position as the one of the most eloquent – and outspoken – voices in contemporary music.

Winners of Best Group at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, Lau are modern folk music’s most innovative band. Featuring the beautiful vocals and skillful guitar playing of award winning Orcadian songwriter Kris Drever. Pioneering post-everything accordion and electronics from Martin Green and the timeless masterful and melodic creativity of Scottish fiddler Aidan O’Rourke.
