Event Details

Finding a Voice 2022 will take place from Thursday March 3 to Tuesday March 8 in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary and will feature performances by musicians from a variety of genres, including Pauline Scanlon and her band.

Pauline (pictured above – Photo by Colin Gillen) is taking a brief break from her current commitments with the Dónal Lunny-led Atlantic Arc project to showcase songs from her new album, The Unquiet, due to be released in March 2022. The album which was recorded during lockdown is her third collaboration with producer, John Reynolds.

“This album is based on the life of my late mother, Eileen Scanlon and her contemporaries in Irish society,” she says. “The songs have a resonance and a purpose in reflecting her lived experience and that of modern-era women in Ireland, through my perspective.”

Pauline’s reflections on the particular issues affecting women today is no doubt inspired by her activism as a founding member of FairPlé, the campaign for gender equity in folk and traditional music.
