“You’re put in the place of a bird navigating wide open landscapes, absorbing light, space and air. This is music that takes you on its wing, and gives you fresh visions” ★★★★ Jude Rogers, The Guardian
“McVittie takes her inspiration from W.B. Yeats’s idea of a kind of Celtic phantasmagoria which can be felt but remains essentially ineffable” ★★★★ Mike Barnes, MOJO
‘The Woman in the Moon‘ is the new album from Northern-Irish singer/songwriter Bróna McVittie. It follows her acclaimed albums We Are the Wildlife (January 2018) and The Man in the Mountain (September 2020), building on her reputation for eerie, Celtic lore-inspired electronic folk.
Performing with vocals, electroharp, guitars and electronics, she is joined onstage by Brazilian drummer Marius Rodrigues, who recently recorded with Robert Wyatt, and jazz double bassist Oli Hayhurst, who performed with the late Pharaoh Sanders.
‘The Woman in the Moon’ has been described as “Eerie, alluring and critically acclaimed” by the Sunday Times; ”Visionary” by Folk Radio UK, and Fatea Magazine decided that “Bróna McVittie’s ‘The Woman in the Moon’ is yet another pot of pure gold sitting at the end of her cosmic folk rainbow”
Her music has been included in The Guardian’s 10 Best Folk Albums both in 2020 and 2021 with four-star reviews from Mojo, Uncut Magazine and The Independent. Her work has been broadcast on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 3 and 6Music by Mark Radcliffe, Iggy Pop, Gideon Coe, Cerys Matthews and Lauren Laverne; on regional BBC channels by Lynette Fay, Eve Blair and more; in Ireland on RTÉ radio by John Kelly, Ellen Crannitch and Cian Ó Cíobháin and further afield in Italy, The Netherlands, the USA, Canada and Australia.
