A homegrown talent on the rise

“Sofar Sounds”, founded in 2010 is a global, grass roots network of musicians, hosts and guests.

Their aim is to bring the magic back to live music by curating secret, intimate gigs in unique spaces.

We caught up with Derry born, Roisin Donald, known in the music industry as “Roe”, after her Sofar Sounds gig in a barber shop in Belfast.
