Callaghan @ The Old Book Store, Bristol, UK | November 2, 2015 – Review

callaghan 2

I’ve got to admit, I already knew that I would end this gig by fangirling all about Callaghan, because I’ve seen her 4 times this year and ended every time by gushing over how she has the purest voice ever etc etc. However, after a particularly crappy weekend, and a not very restful Monday, I was not really feeling like making a public appearance and so I wasn’t sure exactly how much exuberance Callaghan would get from this wreck of a human.

Cambridge Folk Festival 2015 | Day One – Review


Credit: Esther Harper

Written by Esther Harper

For over fifty years, Cambridge Folk Festival has been a hub of all things folk music, welcoming up-and-coming and established artists, as well as downright legends. Now celebrating its fifty-first year, the festival got off to a cheery start this Thursday after the rain subsided and the sun attempted to shine down on the masses that had descended on Cherry Hinton Hall Park. The main stage remained closed until Friday, and instead early festivalgoers milled about the various smaller stages and tents, which mostly featured lesser-known artists throughout the evening, making for an intimate start to such a big event in the folk music calendar.

Callaghan ‘A History Of Now’ – Album Review


[Ed. note: fanboy alert]

I came late to the Callaghan party, only seeing her for the first time back in March at a London showcase for her new album ‘A History Of Now’. It is fair to say she blew me away with the quality of her vocals, and after seeing her on the pop-up stages at Country to Country, and then on her recent tour of the UK, I have been officially indoctrinated into the major fanboy category of listener.

Callaghan @ Green Note, London, UK | April 23, 2015 – Review


In terms of vocal purity and emotional depth, Callaghan is the best artist I’ve seen by miles. She may not be able to captivate arenas like similarly-pitched vocalist Lee Ann Womack did at Country to Country 2015, but at The Green Note in Camden, a tiny indie venue, she was absolutely perfect.

VIDEO: Callaghan ‘Crazy Beautiful Life’

callaghan coffee cup (Medium)In the lead up to her second studio album ‘A History of Now’, which sees her reflecting on several years of living in Nashville and paying her dues around the US and UK, Callaghan is coming off a string of great press including an acclaimed set at the recent C2C Festival and an industry showcase at Sergio’s in London. Her video for ‘Best Year’ took an a song of hers originally written a while back and gave it a whole new poignancy when considering how far she has come in her journey, and new single and video ‘Crazy Beautiful Life’ takes it another step further when showing gratitude for the gifts she has been given.
