Sabrina Piggott launches her new exciting album "Roots and Wings"
Accompanied b Bob Lockwood on double, with guest slot by performance poet, Siobhan Mac Mahom.
Sabrina's songs are full of a sense of open space and possibilities. For Sabrina is an adventuress. An award-winner. In many ways a free spirit. With roots and wings.
Her rich traditional music background derives from her ancestral home, the countryside of Cork, in Ireland. And her distinctive rippling, almost Philip Glass evoking, acoustic guitar style sets the tone for a heart-melting voice, with its Celtic timbre, that pulls the emotion out of the lyric.
The rhythmic consistency in Sabrina’s playing harks back to her roots as a champion Irish bodhran player. And the settings and ideas in her songwriting also show a wider artistic sensibility. Previously, Sabrina has collaborated with acclaimed poet Siobhan MacMahon, for whom she provided musical accompaniment in the award-winning work The Mouth of the Cave, featured at the Wicklow Arts Festival.
And also whilst in Wicklow, Sabrina’s solo fringe gig was awarded the AOIFE Best Musical Individual Award, given each year to the performer who, in the opinion of the panel, gave the best national performance across all AOIFE festivals in Ireland.
