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)
