Sligo Live Festival presents NIALL McCABE.
Having earned a reputation as one of Ireland’s finest singers and songwriters Niall McCabe has performed extensively with his Folk-Soul group The Niall McCabe Band over the past decade. Born on Clare Island, Co. Mayo, McCabe grew up in the family run pub awash with strong musical influences from traditional Irish and folk to rock and soul. It is here that Niall discovered his musical appetite and developed a style and voice that are unquestionably his own.As well as becoming an accomplished finger-style guitar player, more recently Niall has been lending his unique voice to Irish trad-fusion band Beoga, touring Ireland, Europe and the USA while also playing support for Ed Sheeran, Foy Vance, Ariel Posen and Johnny Swim. McCabe’s eagerly anticipated ‘Rituals’ album was released in February 2023 to great critical acclaim and featured as RTE Album of the Week, while the song Rituals topped the RTE Radio airplay charts for five consecutive weeks.
