Ailbhe Reddy's songs offer up searing observations on life and love that connect with events we can all relate to. With so much regret in her music it was a surprise how darn cheery she is in person! Honoured and delighted that Ailbhe is this week's guest on Born Optimistic. Listen below and buy tickets to see her at Tradfest on Jan 28th here. Highly recommended!
In a Born Optimistic Podcast special that's revealing, uplifting and emotional, Glen Hansard talks about his friendship with Mic, the making of Skylarkin' and wishing Mic was still around. Buy Skylarkin' here (opens in new window). This conversation was recorded in Glen’s home just a short while after he got Mic’s album ‘Skylarkin’ on vinyl for the first time. This is why you can hear side two of Skylarkin’ in the background of the first half on the chat.
