DeBarra's Sitting Room
Songs from the intimate setting of the Debarras sitting room, hosted by Gavin Moore with some very special guests Sive & Diarmuid Cahill.
Having spent a number of years gigging extensively in Ireland and beyond with a variety of musicians, Sadhbh formed the band in its current lineup which consists of bassist Eoin Hartwieg, drummer Patrick Hopkins and guitarist Mark Dudley. They have been performing together since the beginning of 2010 and since then have opened shows for a handful of renowned acts including Kila and Gemma Hayes, toured Europe and had their music featured in radio and television shows across Ireland. Their music fuses alternative rock with a variety of genres, drawing influence from jazz, folk and progressive music.
Sive's debut album We Are Moving was released in April 2012 and can be downloaded from her official website:
“Sadhbh is no slouch. Guitar, piano, glockenspiel, percussion and melodica are just some of the instruments she plays. But perhaps her standout instrument is her voice, which sweeps along displaying folk and jazz nuances with the confidence of one who knows." - Eamon Carr, The Herald
“This is a true collaboration with the musical personalities shining through, and while all the songs have been written by O’Sullivan, the players offer many creative flourishes throughout. It is this originality and willingness to experiment with sound that raises ‘We Are Moving' above most other releases from recent times." - Justin McDaid, Golden Plec
“Drawing from a wide variety of alternative rock, jazz and folk influences, Sive’s gorgeous sound is a fusion of these influences with perfect arrangement, excellent musicianship and charm." - Barrygruff Music Blog

Diarmuid a hometown favourite, more recognised for his term in the Cloch na gCoilte football jersey than for his music but that is the other way around in New Zealand where Diarmuid has been finely crafting his songs over the past 7 years. He has been a proactive member of the New Plymouth music community and has collaborated, performed live regularly, recorded and achieved radio play during that time.
