The Breath

Whistlers Green

Ríoghnach Connolly and Stuart McCallum are the creative heart of The Breath.  They make an unlikely couple. Ríoghnach, known for her work with Afro Celt Sound System and Honeyfeet is a daughter of Armagh who has made Manchester her home. She has a gift for singing, a remarkable voice, a deep elegiac sensibility and a puckish, mischievous character. Stuart, by contrast, is a Mancunian urbanite who’s worked with Cinematic Orchestra  and is given to dry understatement and calm confidence. Both seem poised on the brink of revelation.
