Songlines @ The Model

Songlines is an evening which provides a platform for the insanely talented songwriters in the northwest of Ireland and beyond who are invited to perform in a listening environment, showcasing their songwriting ability.


Songlines was conceived by singer-songwriter Miles Graham with some help from the wonderfully talented Cathy Jordan. Cathy hosted the first event in 2012 and the second event saw Charlie McGettigan as host.

This December, we are delighted to have DJ Karen Spellman as host to another incredible line up of songwriting genius including Oliver Alcorn & Robert Naczas from Out of Towners, Kathleen Turner, Amy O’Hara, Colette Sheerin, Wayne O’Connor, Kate O’Callaghan, Kieran Quinn Jessie Solange and Dean Gurrie.

The format of the event is in a one room environment, consisting of 3-4 small stages in a circle, with a host introducing a number of singer/songwriters in rotation (A ‘Later with Jools’ type stage setup).

The talent and standard has been to the highest level and in previous nights with international bloggers sharing their experience online with Failte Ireland and social media sites.

An eclectic mix of all genres from Folk, Pop, Rock, RnB , Soul, Jazz to Hip Hop. Songlines creates a really entertaining experience for the songwriter performing, and for the audience!
