Derry singer and actress Bronagh Gallagher has announced an outstanding evening at The Playhouse with her eight piece band to celebrate the release of her stunning self-titled second album.

Bronagh, a deeply soulful artist with a unique gift for singing and storytelling, has created a fascinating new world of songs and stories through her own personal experiences.

A patron of The Playhouse, she’ll celebrate the launch of her highly anticipated second album at the award winning theatre on Thursday, May 31, at 8pm.

The listener will be seduced by the songs the stories and their characters and take flight on a journey from Ireland to Dorset England, Paris to Berlin and then onto California, becoming submerged into magical nights unfolding wonderful stories in the ‘City of Angels’ finally leading into the darkness and ganglands of Mexico City. Following her Meteor-nominated debut album Precious Soul (Mojo Magazine ***), Bronagh has again penned all her own material, collaborating on some of the music writing with her cousin Caolan McLaughlin, and the wonderful band of musicians that accompanied and guided Bronagh as she also took the helm as producer on this record.

Tickets are £10 from The Playhouse Box Office on: 71.268027 or online at www.derryplayhouse.co.uk.
