Droichead Arts Centre’s Solo @ Home is a video podcast series curated by SJ McArdle. The series is presented as part of #DroicheadConnects, a programme which supports art and creativity during the pandemic.
The idea of the podcast is to give us an insight into the lockdown experience of four disparate musicians and present a bespoke home-recorded performance by each. The interviews and performances are intimate, engaging and unique to this series. The series will be presented on our YouTube channel Droichead.Arts.Centre https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQro862tgmLkiMa4dCuuy6g
Farah Elle is a singer-songwriter whose distinctive music reveals something of the beauty in the ephemeral everyday.

Her ethos as an artist is to spread awareness & positivity through her music. Farah also holds wellness workshops to empower people creatively through self-expression & sound. While performing shows regularly, Farah is currently preparing to release her debut album 'FATIMA', named after her mother; due to be released in 2020.
"... the ethereal Farah Elle, whose demure, pixie meet Audrey Hepburn persona, won the crowd over. Working her inner Freddie Mercury with plucky, Queen-like piano and ethnic music influences, the distinctive singer stood out as an act to watch out for."
