Calmea, Laura Duff and Fiona O’Connell are on a joint Irish tour


Three Irish artists are currently on a tour together which kicked off in Pot Duggan’s in Ennistymon in Clare yesterday.

It’s always good to see acts band together to do an Irish tour, and the Limerick alt-pop artist Laura Duff, alt-folk singer Calmea (also with the band Of All Living Things), and singer-songwriter Fiona O’Connell are playing shows over the next week.

The dates are:

2nd September – Cork (Maureen’s) – afternoon show

3rd September – Limerick (Mother Macs)

6th September – Dublin (Vintage Room)

Laura Duff

Laura Duff is an artist from Limerick City. Duff introduced herself in 2019 with moody debut EP “For Your Company”, followed by sophomore, alt-pop effort “Heavy Summer” two years later. 2023 sees the Limerick native return to the scene, with a debut album slated for release later this year. Joined by friends JJ Lee (Bass), Chris O’Sullivan (Drums) and Mícheál Keating (Guitar), Duff’s hauntingly autobiographical tracks are given an extra breath of life.

Fiona O’Connell

Fiona O’ Connell is an independent singer-songwriter and producer whose ethereal folk music balances upon both her intricate vocal melodies and delicate approach to songwriting. Influenced by the likes of Joshua Burnside and Adrianne Lenker, she combines the simplicity of more traditional folk melodies with pop, ambient and electronic elements to weave a lane of her own. 


Originally from Lisbon, Portugal, Eunice has been living and making music in Ireland for 5 years. Calmea is a made-up word, similar to the Portuguese adjective ‘calma’, meaning to be relaxed and at peace. This alias felt fitting due to the ambient folk, ethereal and textural sound Eunice created in her music. She draws inspiration from acts such as Cassandra Jenkins, Indigo Sparke and Sea Oleena.
