Sabrina Piggott is no stranger to Chapel FM and we are only too happy to see her back with the release of her new album—Roots and Wings. She will be supported on the night by two more amazing women performers—Siobhan Mac Mahon and Miranda Arieh. All in all it will be a beautiful night of adventures in music and poetry...
Sabrina's songs are full of a sense of open space and possibilities. For Sabrina is an adventuress. An award-winner. In many ways a free spirit. With roots and wings.
Her rich traditional music background derives from her ancestral home, the countryside of Cork, in Ireland. And her distinctive rippling, almost Philip Glass evoking, acoustic guitar style sets the tone for a heart-melting voice, with its Celtic timbre, that pulls the emotion out of the lyric.
Siobhan is Irish Performance Poet living in Yorkshire. The live experience and embodiment of the Spoken Word is at the heart and centre of her work. Her poems, powerful and often funny, celebrate and explore our sacred connection and belonging to the Earth. She has collaborated with Sabrina in the past and they will shortly be touring Ireland together.
Miranda has performed at Chapel FM as part of the Sisterhood Collective and she is gearing up to her own album release in July at the Brudenell where she will play with full band. At Chapel FM she plans to play a more intimate solo set. As an accomplished songwriter and mental health campaigner, Miranda has made a name for herself for her passionate live performances and unique style.
"Hypnotic" was how Tom Robinson described her on BBC 6 Music.

And how much does it cost?
We try to keep all our events at Chapel FM as cheap and accessible as possible. This is a Pay-what-you-can gig. We like to make as many as our events at Chapel FM truly affordable so we ask you to decide what you can afford to contribute £2, £5, £8... We won't take any money upfront but you can reserve yourself a ticket through eventbrite and then make your contribution on the door on the night. All moneys raised is split between the artists and supporting our work at Chapel FM.

Siobhan has been actively involved in the 100 Thousand Poets for Change worldwide movement. Her multi-lingual poetry film Forgotten Memory was shown at the Cork Film Festival and at the Cyclops Film Festival, Ukraine.
“With comparisons to Kate Bush, PJ Harvey and Patti Smith, this original Leeds based songwriter taps a seam of introspective poetry combined with a powerful yet vulnerable stage presence.”
