THIS EVENT HAS PASSED

“Breathtaking…absolutely incredible” is how BBC London’s Gaby Roslin describes hearing Callaghan live.

Originally from the UK Callaghan moved from London to Atlanta in summer 2010 to record her debut album with Grammy-Nominee Shawn Mullins. Since then she’s been performing and winning fans all over the USA.

Here in the UK the BBC Radio 2 and BBC local radio have been strong supporters with Bob Harris describing her as “a wonderful artist…hugely talented”.

Callaghan performs on piano and guitar and offers a stunning voice which earns frequent comparisons with artists like Sarah McLachlan, Eva Cassidy and Carly Simon. Her songwriting chronicles the stories, experiences and emotions which are part of everyone’s lives.

The UK’s Maverick Magazine calls her “a singer-songwriter of a seriously high standard”, while US magazine No Depression reviewed her live show as “nothing short of stunning”. Callaghan’s latest project, Callaghan’s Acoustic Coffee House 3, is set to release in early 2022.

Tom Bright

Throughout 2021 Tom gained huge praise from Elbow legend Guy Garvey on BBC 6 Music, new music champion John Kennedy aired every release on his iconic Radio X show (hosting Tom for a live session the day after the album release), and he even landed in Spotify’s editorial playlist The Most Beautiful Songs in the World with his heartbreakingly raw If I Met Your Shadow.

Support stretched all the way up to Iain Anderson on BBC Scotland, across to Ireland on RTÉ Radio 1 with Lilian Smith, and also came from long-term followers Gary Crowley (BBC London) & Dean Jackson (BBC Introducing).

For someone who was once the youngest pub landlord in the UK, Tom has turned his life upside down and now confidently showcases his immense strength as a songwriter. His voice has an ethereal quality, his songs are infectious and ‘Legacy’ was a sublime sophomore record.
