Niamh Regan released her critically acclaimed album ‘Hemet’ via Black Gate Records in September 2020.
Comparisons with contemporary artists such as Laura Marling, Lisa Hannigan, This Is the Kit and Sarah Jarosz have appeared regularly in the UK and Irish press, while discerning critics detect the influence of Nick Drake,, Bert Jansch, Richard Thompson, Tom Waits, Paul Brady, and Karen Dalton. One thing is for sure: with the release ‘Hemet’, Niamh has carved out her own niche in the world of contemporary folk music. ‘Hemet’ is an album full of musical accomplishment, emotional maturity, and subtle craft. It is the long-awaited arrival of a
truly immense talent.
Niamh says: “I have been completely blown away by the support for the album since it’s release. Thankfully,
with kind support from the Live Venue Collective last December, my band and I were lucky enough to perform songs from it in some of these excellent venues around the country for a series of live-streamed gigs. Now I’m itching to get out there and play in front of real audiences again. It is such joy to have the shows to look
forward to later in the year. Hopefully see you then.”
