20 Years of the Irish Singles Chart

Linda Coogan Byrne and her team over at WhyNotHer have put together a startling report on the state of the Irish Singles Chart over the last 20 years and how it practically ignored Women and BIPOC.  It's an incredible piece of work, one that, had all things been fair and equal, should never have had to be complied. Unfortunately, like most things, the Irish Music Industry isn't a fair and equal place... Anyway, don't take my word for it, click here to read the report.

Emma Langford - Mariana

It's not everyday that a friend produces a video for one of my favourite artists, but today, that's exactly what happened.  The very talented Sophia Cadogan produced this beautiful video for Emma Langford's latest release called 'Mariana'. I've seen Emma perform many times over the last few years and it's always a joy.  That shot is from her set at Knockanstockan 2019.  Once we are all allowed back out to play, you should go see her live. The track is available to buy on Bandcamp with all proceeds going to Safe Ireland , a very worthy cause. Check out the video below:
