About the bands:
Imagine four people of very diverse musical and non-musical interests, obsessed with words, and who write songs to make sense of their daily lives. add a splash of weirdness, some theatrical training and you’d have something like what My Fellow Sponges get up to on and off stage…
Miriam Donohue is a singer/songwriter, based in Galway city. Likened to some great female vocalists such as Beth Orthon and Suzanne Vega, she has crafted her own unique style of storytelling, celebrating the everyday beauty of life in her soft enchanting tones.
