VILLAGERS

LEITH THEATRE / EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL 2019

Intricate songcraft, virtuoso fingerpicking and ear-catching melodic electronica combine in Villagers’ astonishing music.

The musical project of Dublin singer/songwriter Conor O’Brien, Villagers first came to prominence with the release of their debut album Becoming a Jackal which was shortlisted for the 2010 Mercury Prize, the Choice Music Prize and awarded an Ivor Novello for ‘Best Song Musically & Lyrically’ for the title track.

They’ve since become a prolific force in music.  The follow up album Awayland was also shortlisted for the Mercury Prize and awarded the Choice Music Prize.
