Set List

  • "It's Clearing Now"
  • "How You Feel"

Brigid Mae Power's work, which is rooted in the acoustic world of traditional Irish tunes, creeps up on you like a fog. The Irish singer has recorded her music — most of which she's released on Bandcamp — in unique locations, such as old churches. Power's chosen locale for her new, self-titled album? Portland, Oregon. (American singer and songwriter Peter Broderick, who'd met her at a gig, convinced her to travel all that way to record.)

Power performs magically, particularly on longer pieces like "It's Clearing Now." Hear the conversation and performance at the audio link above.
