Performing under the name ‘Saramai’ are Kells-based husband and wife duo, Saramai Leech and Cormac O’Keeffe. Having both been in other bands, including each other’s bands, and doing solo work till now, they are excited about their new material as a duo. ‘We had to learn how to write together. It sounds strange but helping someone write a song or giving your opinion is not really the same as actually writing together.’ Heralded by Nialler9, The Irish Times and Hotpress, they have extensive performance experience across Ireland and more recently in the UK. Live TV and radio performances include Other Voices RTE, Arena Arts, Today FM and more. They have released two EPs (Saramai) and an album of original work (Red Queen Contest) and are currently working on a full length album which will be their first full collaboration. Joining them on the night is Kells-based multi-instrumentalist Alan Carmody.
