“Ailbhe Reddy stands a head and shoulders above the folk mainstream” – The Line of Best Fit
“Dublin musician Ailbhe Reddy is a singer-songwriter whose deeply personal heart-on-her-sleeve lyrics and a memorable voice lingers with you long after your first taste” (Record of the Day, UK). She first began to attract attention when a homemade demo of her song ‘Cover Me’ was used in a Today FM radio advert in 2014. Later that year her first single, ‘Flesh & Blood’ garnered excellent reviews from Irish blogs, and was featured as Song of the day on the UK blog Folk Radio UK. Reddy has gone on to feature on every major Irish festival line up, such as Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, Other Voices, Hard Working Class Heroes, Knockanstockan and Spirit of Folk.
Citóg is an old Irish term denoting a left-handed person. Sinistrality being considered a sign of the devil, the term Citóg was often ascribed in a derogatory manner to those considered ‘a bit special’.
Citóg is also a weekly celebration of music we consider to be a bit special. In a good way.
It takes place on the first three Wednesdays of every month downstairs in the Róisín Dubh. Each week we have three original acts and admission is free.
