A diva with Waterbirds, a stomping folkster with Boudica Boogaloo, and a natural balladeer as a solo acoustic songwriter, there are few things Nuala hasn’t attempted. With Irish heritage but Australian born and raised, Nuala is now based in Bristol in the South-West of England. Nuala is one of the founding members of The World Is Listening, and is enthusiastic about using her wide range of DIY skills to advocate for women, including hosting the TWiL podcast. www.nualahonan.com Twitter @nualahonan facebook.com/nualahonanmusic
