The Acoustic Yard singer/songwriter sessions at Matt Molloys, Westport, return on Tuesday, November 25, for the final session of the year.
The session features three artists with eclectic styles, from traditional folk to contemporary pop.

Her songs have been recorded by Niamh Parsons, Frances Black, Rig the Jig, Don Stiffe, Anthony John Clarke, The Border Collies, Scold's Bridle and The Once to name but a few. She has recorded four albums to date of her own songs.
Niall Teague is a singer/songwriter from Belfast city but has been firmly routed in the Galway music scene for the last number of years. Niall has gained respect as a performer, singer and a songwriter in both Galway and further afield through groups 4 Men and a Bass, and The Fast Company, as well the Sharon Shannon band.
Joanna Marie is a new singer/songwriter from Dublin, whose writing is very much influenced by Joni Mitchell. She met Ola Ersfjord, a producer who encouraged her to record an EP, Cold on the Coast, which was launched in Dublin last July.
