The singer-songwriter Brigid Mae Power was born in London and moved to Galway when she was twelve years old. In a very Irish kind of way, Power muses about the unstable local weather on her new album’s opening track. “It’s clearing now,” she sings. On 8 July, she’ll be singing in Mitchelstown Cave along with the alternative roots artist Mark O’Reilly. As the organizers point out: “The Cave is a half mile walk underground after a steep incline to the performance space. The temperature in the Cave is 12 degrees. Please wear flat shoes and bring a coat.”
