Originally from Lincolnshire, Callaghan moved to the USA in summer 2010 to record her debut album with Grammy-nominee Shawn Mullins. Since then she’s been touring and winning fans all over the USA.
Playing piano and guitar Callaghan offers a stunning voice which earns frequent comparisons with artists like Sarah McLachlan and Eva Cassidy. Her songwriting chronicles the stories, experiences and emotions which are part of everyone’s lives. Here in the UK BBC Radio 2 have been strong supporters with Bob Harris regularly playing her music and describing her as “a wonderful artist…hugely talented”. She’s also been heard frequently on BBC Radio Lincolnshire.
Callaghan’s UK touring has included festival appearances at Cornbury, The Secret Garden Party, Cambridge Folk Festival and more. In summer 2018 she joined Paul Simon, James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt at British Summertime in Hyde Park.
Her latest project Callaghan’s Acoustic Coffee House Volume 2 was recorded as a live session in Nashville. Featuring a mix of Callaghan’s own songs and some of her favourite songs by other artists it includes Callaghan’s versions of James Taylor’s Fire & Rain and Buddy Holly’s Raining in My Heart. Appearing in Lincoln with her full band, expect a show from Callaghan which is both uplifting and moving.
*Support act (tbc) will be on stage at 8pm and Callaghan at 9pm.
