With a voice that “could melt icebergs at 50 paces” (VOX) Briana Corrigan of The Beautiful South is returning to the stage after a 10-year hiatus with a handful of intimate shows throughout the UK and including Northern Ireland.
Belfast born Corrigan is best known for delivering Beautiful South’s most successful single, the chart topping, No1, Brit award winning A Little Time where her unique vocal -“one of the most distinctive voices in pop” (Time Out) and Heaton’s brilliantly acerbic lyrics and catchy melody combined to create an unforgettable anthem to broken love
As a songwriter in her own right, Corrigan has released 2 critically acclaimed solo albums, enjoying accolades from the likes of Q magazine, “ her forte…. ‘chest hugging breast beating balladry of the highest calibre”, “A revelation!” (Melody Maker) “a songwriter of wit and elegance” (Hot Press), “It’s like listening to someone sing you a story. The rain outside is drifting along the glass and this is a good soundtrack to the tale of its falling” (Melody Maker)
This is a rare opportunity to hear Corrigan’s “stupendous vocal” (NME) up close and personal as she entertains with an evening of story and song. Expect Beautiful South classics, nestled among her own beautifully crafted songs and some unique takes on traditional favourites all combining to pack an intimate, heart-warming, emotional and joyous punch of connection.Artists on stage: 8.00pm
