EX-JJ72 bassist Hilary Woods comes to Limerick this Saturday for a rare and intimate solo show in the Kasbah Social Club.

The Dublin songwriter, singer and visual artist is known for her beguiling songcraft, as evidenced on the 2013 release The River Cry, which was hailed by critics.

As but a teenager Woods toured the world extensively with Irish indie sensations JJ72, signing to Columbia Records and playing sold out shows from New York to London, Tokyo and LA, playing support to PJ Harvey, Muse and Elbow.

The diminutive musician - whose hushed, tender vocals are spell binding live - says she writes “dark detuned dream pop steeped in atmosphere and sensibility” and is gearing up to release her new record in September.

She plays the Kasbah Social Club - 5 Dock Road - this Saturday night for Seoda Shows and admission is free.
