Leah Sohotra 'Breaded Crickets' album launch.
Thursday Feb 27th. 9pm.
Tickets €15 (includes a copy of CD Album)
Leah Sohotra is a local singer/songwriter living in Blarney.
Originally from Vermont, and having lived in Ireland for eight years, her imagery draws heavily on rural American and Irish landscapes. Her work also draws from classical literature and folk tradition, nursery rhymes and epic poetry and therefore the subjects are often animals and mythical creatures.
The themes of the songs are based on personal experiences of loss, love, violence, heartbreak and motherhood.
The songs were written to be sung acapella, which is better demonstrated on the EP for her band Weird Dogs that precedes the album.
The ten song album, Breaded Crickets, however is a work brought together by the musical prowess and ingenuity of multi-instrumentalist Martin Leahy who features on the album playing well over a dozen different instruments.
