Originally from Ireland, Bronagh has been living in Sicily for seven years with her husband and their two children.
Growing up in a large family in Ireland meant escaping outdoors to read by rivers or the sea was essential, and this is where her love for the physical world began. Immersed in the work of Seamus Heaney, Louis MacNeice and Medbh McGuckian while studying piano and cello, she evaded the question, “What do you want to do?” preferring to live by intuition as she worked out a way to bring together her passion for music and words.
She studied Law and Spanish and French in Bristol and holds a Masters in Anglo-Irish Literature from University College Dublin. She is singer-songwriter with Crustation on the album, BLOOM, and is currently involved in songwriting projects in Sicily and France.
Having lived in Spain and northern Italy and backpacked alone through South America and West Africa, she has reached this conclusion: from Bristol to Brazil, from Andalusia to the Andes and Dublin to Dakar… nowhere has been as challenging and full of contrast as Sicily.
Sicily inspires her on a daily basis.
