KIERAN GOSS with special guest Annie Kinsella

Kieran Goss and Annie Kinsella return to Tech Amergin with songs from their critically acclaimed debut duo album ‘Oh, The Starlings’…… songs, stories and harmonies that transport the listener to another world, this is music from the heart, for the heart… A show to make you laugh and cry… A show to move you with its honest beauty… A show not to be missed.
“Oh, The Starlings, the debut album from Irish duo Kieran Goss and Annie Kinsella, is quite simply stunning. Great songs, beautiful harmonies and an artistic triumph that constantly reminds us that less is more.” Irish Times
“Individually, they are both gifted singers but when they sing together, magic happens… the harmonies, the chemistry… just sublime.” Time Out Magazine.
Recorded in New York with eight-time Grammy winning engineer and mixer Kevin Killen at the helm (David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, U2, Elvis Costello), ‘Oh, The Starlings’ has been described by songwriter Rodney Crowell as: “So good, it’s heartbreaking… the record itself feels like an old friend.”
Having already won the kinds of reviews that signal their elevation onto the international stage, Kieran Goss and Annie Kinsella’s ‘Oh, The Starlings’ is a work of art with poetry and melody at its heart. While at times reminiscent of the great music of the 70s – Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell or Leonard Cohen – Goss and Kinsella have undeniably succeeded in creating something magnificently, uniquely theirs: an album that is both classic and modern, simple and multi-layered, quiet and dynamic.
