Keeley Forsyth @ Kilkenny Arts Festival 2022

Wednesday, 10 August 2022, 9.30pm

Built upon sparse arrangements, Forsyth’s music is centred around a singular, emotionally raw and magnetic vocal delivery, by turns devastating and uplifting.

20 years into a successful acting career, Keeley Forsyth switched focus with astonishing results. Her debut album Debris – written in collaboration with pianist and composer Matthew Bourne – revealed a singer-songwriter of startling originality, unafraid to explore the darker corners of domestic life through tales of freedom and entrapment.

Debris was hailed as ‘one of the most remarkable [albums] in years’ (The Sunday Times) and Forsyth’s unique voice, devastating and uplifting by turns, invoked comparisons with everyone from Scott Walker to Beth Gibbons. With a more expansive (but equally acclaimed) second album, Limbs, just released, Forsyth comes to Kilkenny to showcase her magnetic vocals and haunting brand of folk in the Set.
