Main Stage: SUNDAY 11
Just 19 years old, Bridie Monds-Watson has been performing in her home of Derry since the age of 14, where she’d split her time between studying, the local skate-park, her burgeoning songwriting and touring in the school holidays. Then, in 2014 she released the beautiful ‘Blud’ and toured with the likes of George Ezra and Bombay Bicycle Club.
In the same summer that most of her friends got their exam results, Soak signed an album deal with Rough Trade Records and aired the beautiful singles B a noBody and Sea Creatures. Her album Before We Forgot How To Dream cements Bridie Monds-Watson’s ascent from a raw talent to a unique artistic voice for 2015
