Imagining Ireland 2024

Sorcha Richardson sits in the middle of a woodland clearing

Emanating from an evolving city the intriguing Sorcha Richardson invites Ye Vagabonds, Aby Coulibaly, Susan O'Neill, MOIO and Rachael Lavelle for a night of 21st century Irish song-writing.  

From the folk-inspired to trailblazing R&B, Imagining Ireland 2024 showcases Dublin's brightest stars. 

Tender and cinematic Sorcha Richardson connects to audiences through her narrative songwriting. Ye Vagabonds perform pieces from their celebrated album Nine Waves whilst long-time Irish collaborator Susan O’Neill stuns with a timeless voice, equal parts balm and blowtorch.

Rising star of Irish R&B Aby Coulibaly mixes 90s beats, buttery vocals with insightfully observational lyricism and multi-hyphenate MOIO is establishing himself as a leading force in the emerging Irish Creative community with his soulful alternative R&B. 

 Rachael Lavelle captivates audiences with her arresting voice and humorous observations on existence, bringing Big Dreams to the Barbican, her existential coming-of-age debut album.


Produced by Serious and National Concert Hall, and supported by Culture Ireland with additional support by the Embassy of Ireland, London.  

This performance will end at approximately 10.15pm, including a 20-minute interval
