The Courthouse Arts Centre, Tinahely welcomes Snowpoet to Wicklow, a band led by London based Jazz FM Vocalist of the Year (2016) Lauren Kinsella and multi-instrumentalist Chris Hyson. The band also features Josh Arcoleo on saxophone, Matt Robinson on keys, Nick Costley-White on guitar and Dave Hamblett on drums.

Their debut album Snowpoet won rave reviews, drawing comparisons with Bjork. Their follow up, Thought you Knew, being likened to a multi-faceted jewel, brings their sound to the next level, blending sweet hook-laden vocal lines with warm and lush arrangements.

The band was recently featured by Jamie Cullen on his BBC Radio 2 show, and on Spotify's best of UK Jazz playlist. Their Dublin concert is sold out, so unless you can get to Wexford or Waterford, this is the only chance to see them on the East Coast.

The show takes place on Sunday, March 11 and doors open at 8.30 p.m. Tickets cost €16/€14.
