A photograph of Niall McCabe on stage

With self-effacing humour and stories told of growing up on a remote Irish Island Niall McCabe possess an effortless charm which both captivates and liberates his audience, from Dublin's intimate venues to grand stages across the UK and the Atlantic, most recently appearing at Celtic Connections and Americana Fest UK in January 2024.

Like the wild Atlantic landscape of his home McCabe’s songs feel timeless and natural yet bely the dense shaping of a dynamic creative force. Deft, intricate guitar work brings a lightness to the weight of Island isolation yet the sound, soul and stories of McCabe’s life and experiences breathe a deep cultured sense of discernment through his vocals.

His natural distinct voice is earning him a growing loyal fan base, discovering his music as he travels extensively, with his recent album tour schedule bringing him to venture off the Island, across Ireland, UK, Europe and North America.

As well as becoming an accomplished finger-style guitar player, Niall has been lending his unique voice to Irish trad-fusion band ‘Beoga’,touring Ireland, Europe and the USA while also playing support for Ed Sheeran, Foy Vance and Johnny Swim.

In 2023, a breakthrough year, Niall's Irish Tour triumphed with sold-out shows in iconic venues like Whelan's Dublin and the Ruby Room in Galway. The UK leg in November marked his solo debut in cities such as London and Liverpool, leaving audiences spellbound.

The crescendo continued as Niall opened for Chris Isaak on 3k+ cap sold-out UK shows at the London Eventim Apollo and Wolverhampton Civic Halls.

Solidifying his global presence, Niall opened for Sharon Shannon twice in 2023, impressing diverse audiences in Dublin and the New York City Winery, and he also delivered a captivating performance at the prestigious 2023 Americana Festival in Nashville.

McCabe’s eagerly anticipated ‘Rituals’ album was released in February 2023 to critical acclaim and featured as RTE Album of the Week, while the song Rituals topped the RTE Radio airplay charts for five consecutive weeks.

Anticipation mounts for new releases in the summer of 2024, promising an exciting chapter in his musical narrative.
