Foy Vance

Regular Bandwidth followers will know that we often frequent the Communion Belfast night at the Black Box on the last Sunday of every month.

This March however, was a very special occasion, with the event moved to 17th, St Patricks Day – and the headliner one Foy Vance. This marked somewhat of a return for Foy who – though he lives and works in London now – comes from Bangor Co. Down’s sunny shores – and here he talks about what it’s like to be back in his birthplace, and he plays a few new tunes too.

Update: Here’s a bonus track – a demo Foy was working on while we were recording, he just wrote it on the plane the night before in fact – which has now made it into his live set, called “Belfast Is Born Again”. Enjoy!

    This man’s music is deeply moving. Thank you for sharing. I will be (most definitely) telling everyone I know about his work.
