Secret Song 2021 at Levis Corner House, Ballydehob, West Cork, Ireland.
This year Secret Song moved from it’s usual live in the house October slot to online and filmed over the weekend 12-14 February 2021 with yet another incredible line-up: Lisa O’Neill with Mick Geary, Varo, Les SalAmandas, Mick Flannery with Susan O’Neill, Susan O’Neill with Liam Ó Maonlaí, Paul Noonan, Saint Sister and Lisa Hannigan.
Secret Song 2021 was streamed via YouTube 13-14 February 2021. Interviews were also recorded so watch out for those.
All photos taken in the few minutes during sound & tech check or behind the scenes.
It’s gonna be a while yet before gigs & tours happen in a liveable capacity. Links to all musician / band website provided below, please visit, follow & buy their records & merch.

Looking at the set up and restrictions in place, I hadn’t expected or assumed I’d be photographing at this year’s Secret Song.
For the brief moments when I found myself alone with each musician, I’d be switching frantically between soaking in that moment and making the photographs.
This was my first time meeting & seeing Varo, Saint Sister & Paul Noonan.
Good hearts every single one. X
See you at the next one.
