The liveIreland Music Awards 2017

The liveIreland Music Awards 2017 (2017 Livies) 2016 was a terrific year for Irish music. In general, the Livies Awards reflect a number of much younger acts this year.

What about her is so rare, and why does she showcase so perfectly real Irish music in the 21st Century? She is not unique. But, she is very...
