For those of you who failed history and geography, Ireland the island is made up of two sovereign states: The Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, part of the United Kingdom. There is a long and complicated history between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, which we don’t want to get into because this isn’t a lousy politics blog. Suffice to say that this part of the Irish Showcase features “songwriter and sometimes singer” Rowena Cairns, our first ever submission from Northern Ireland! For her bio, Rowena says:
I’ve played the dodgy dives and open mics! Released a couple of self-produced EPs way back in the day. Currently recording new material for pitching to all you lovely artists out there. You may see me perform in a corner somewhere or online… I hear it’s all the rage these days! I recorded this in a hurry, but had three cups of tea before, so all is well with the world. Say hi on twitter (preferred social convention network!!) or facebook, soundcloud.
This is a beautiful song. I tell you, music will unite the world, one couch at a time.
