The task of drawing the curtain on Wild Mind 2019 is left in the able hands of Haley Heynderickx, a folk singer-songwriter from Portland, Oregon, with support from Kate Dineen from this parish !
Heynderickx learned to sing at church and at family karaoke parties, building her guitar chops at open mics where she honed a finger-picking guitar style.
Her debut album, named ‘I need to Start a Garden’, out of a search for calm through these waves of uncertainty and upheaval, recalls folk music of the ‘60s and ‘70s mixed with a love of jazz radio. but Heynderickx’s singing – her vocals that range from sultry to operatic – belie a tenacity in her soul.
Hailing from the Spa, Kate Dineen combines intricate accompaniments and introspective lyrics to create a unique dream-folk sound.
Kate released her debut EP in 2016 to positive critical acclaim being featured as New Artist of the Week in The Irish Times and top 10 EPs of 2016 by The Last Mixed Tape. Her single Flames has been featured by a number of international music blogs in countries such as Canada, France and the UK.
