Sophie Coyle from Dundalk began writing songs at the age of 12 on a rare ‘two string’ guitar but threw it all away to complete her secondary school studies. All the old 45minute cassette tapes containing her songs have been lost or taped over, such is life.
Sophie’s music could be described as folk-jazz, old-timey feel with quirky lyrics and catchy tunes.Her song `Delirium` has been used for the Credits of `Spiderhole`, a 2010 feature length, Irish made horror film being distributed internationally. She has sung at many well-established Irish venues such as the Spirit Store, the Roisin Dubh, the Cobblestone, the Belltable, and at the Electric Picnic. Sophie recently played support to John Spillane and was also on the line up for this year’s Flat Lakes Festival just gone.
Sophie’s’ influences included Ella Fitzgerald, Hugues Aufrey, Divine Comedy, Madeleine Peyroux, Willie Colon, John Spillane, Joni Mitchell, St. Vincent, Bob Dylan.
The Village stage promises to keep the crowd entertained through the afternoon with the best line up of acts ever seen at one location in Lucan. This is one event you don’t want to miss at its all FREE!
