Maija Sofia and Aoife Wolf at McHughs, Belfast

Choice Prize-nominated Galway singer-songwriter Maija Sofia makes her long-awaited Belfast debut at McHughs on Saturday, 30th September. Hosted by The Thin Air, the show comes off the back of the release of True Love, Sofia’s critically acclaimed second album, which was released via TULLE Collective on 1st September

Four years on from her debut, Bath Time, True Love has been hailed by the likes of the Quietus. In their review, they said: “It’s about real people, alive and dead, and the power of objects, substances, time and place. It is the work of someone with an enviable talent, and it deserves a lot of love.”

Elsewhere, Tristan Gatward of Loud + Quiet said: “Within its moseying temporality, it’s hard to imagine the age-old format of guitar and voice done better than this.”

Support on the night comes from equally lauded Irish artist Aoife Wolf. Raised in Co. Offaly and based in Belfast, Wolf’s mesmeric recent single ‘A Ringing in the Ear’ follows a European tour, dates across Ireland alongside Jealous of the Birds, and various room-silencing sets supporting the likes of Ichiko Aoba at Dublin’s National Concert Hall. Her psych-folk is a must-see on this double bill.

Tickets are priced £10.00 and can be bought here.
