Long considered one of Ireland’s finest songwriters, Kieran Goss, together with Annie Kinsella have enchanted audiences throughout Europe with their intimate live performances, winning rave reviews along the way. Time Out magazine wrote of the duo:
“Individually they are both gifted singers, but when they sing together, magic happens… The harmonies, the chemistry… just sublime.”Recorded in New York in Spring 2018 with eight time Grammy winning engineer Kevin Killen (David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, U2, Elvis Costello) at the helm, ‘Oh, The Starlings’ has been described by songwriter Rodney Crowell as: “So good, it’s heartbreaking… The record itself feels like an old friend.”
“‘Oh, The Starlings’ is a stunning debut – an astonishing, genre-defying piece of work… I’m confident that it will find its way on to ‘Best of’ lists when we look back on the recordings that moved us in 2019.” (Irish Music Magazine)
“Oh, The Starlings’ is a thing of quiet beauty.”(Folk and Tumble)

With songs, stories and harmonies that transport the listener to another world, this is music from the heart, for the heart.This is a show to make you laugh and cry… a show to move you with its honest beauty… a show not to be missed.
