For this special event, The Breath perform songs from their album Carry your Kin, alongside acclaimed singer-songwriter Julie Murphy.

The Breath unites two artists from wildly different backgrounds: acclaimed urban guitarist Stuart McCallum and Irish flautist and singer Rioghnach Connolly. McCallum’s mastery of loops and effects paired with Connolly’s striking voice are complemented by pianist John Ellis and drummer Luke Flowers. They are joined by Welsh singer-songwriter Julie Murphy, whose remarkable voice has led to collaborations with John Cale and Robert Plant, alongside her work as a solo artist.

This event is part of our ongoing series Folk at the Foundling – bringing traditional music from the British Isles and beyond to the unique surroundings of the Foundling Museum.

The Foundling Museum is a registered charity and all income from ticket sales supports our work
