We can’t wait to see contemporary Irish music at its best with Saint Sister – named “Best Irish Band” in 2016 by the readers of the Irish Times. Saint Sister will be one of our headline acts on the Main Concert Stage, part of a big Saturday night at the Magners Sydney Irish Festival.
The creation of Morgan MacIntyre and Gemma Doherty, Saint Sister’s music draws from early Celtic harp traditions, 60s folk and electronic pop to create ‘atmosfolk’—a mix of soulful vocal harmonies, dreamy synth and electro-acoustic harp.
Since their formation, Saint Sister have toured extensively throughout Europe and Northern America. Amongst a career of many highlights, they have performed at SXSW, BBC Introducing at Glastonbury, Latitude, Electric Picnic, Longitude, The Great Escape, Reeperbahn Festival and Eurosonic. Another addition to that list will soon be the Magners Sydney Irish Festival!
