A single Loudon Wainwright couplet, from a 2012 album track, ‘In C’, encapsulates the primary source of his prolific, soul-searching, often self-lacerating songcraft: “If families didn’t break apart/I suppose there’d be no need for art.” And art is unquestionably what Wainwright has created from the personal conflicts, fears and failings he’s anatomised throughout his nearly 50-year career, addressing parents, wives, lovers, children and above all himself with unparalleled eloquence and candour, searing poignancy and caustic wit. “There’s never been a confessional sage quite like him... an unapologetic narcissist and screwup who still speaks direct, universal truths like no one else in his business.” (Rolling Stone)
One of Ireland’s most potent and passionate singer - songwriters, Karan Casey showcases her new album Hieroglyphs That Tell the Tale, a set of freshly penned originals, traditional songs and contemporary covers that’s been greeted as her finest to date. “Revelatory... Casey at the height of her powers.” (Irish Times)
