Returning Weather is the latest work from Dublin born multi-award-winning vocalist and songwriter Christine Tobin. Celebrated for her versatility and nonconformist musical spirit, Returning Weather imaginatively weaves song, spoken word, visual effects and a stellar group of musicians from diverse disciplines together, creating a multi-dimensional sound-world which blends influences from folk, 20th-century art song and jazz. It charts a journey which is part homecoming, part memoir, inspired by Christine’s return to Ireland after many years abroad and explores themes of finding home, dwelling and landscape, reconnecting with a cultural background, reshaping a sense of identity and belonging. The songs are set in the countryside around Frenchpark, Boyle and Ballaghadereen. There are many songs of leaving and farewell, this is the music of homecoming and return. She was commissioned to write this evocative new song cycle by The Dock Arts Centre, with an Arts Council, Music Commissions Award.

    HOPE TO GET TO CORK FESTIVAL IN SEPT.,

  2. Ane Ramloese Says:

    Hello Christine – I love your voice and your music. And you should know that my daughter – who is now 18 – for the last many years always has put on either Keith Jarrets ” The Melody at Night With You” or “Romance and R” or The Secret Life of ..” when she was in the need for resting and finding peace – A real compliment for you : ) We look forward to listening to Yeats, you and the wonderful band. And hope you will come to Denmark very ! All the best from Ane Ramloese

  3. Judith allen Says:

    we have only just discovered Christine. WOW!! Have just returned from her concert at Terry OTtoole Theatre, North Hykeham. Her voice is breathtaking….didn’t think anyone could do justice to Leonard Cohen songs but I was wrong, very wrong.

  4. Barrie Spark Says:

    My wife and I saw the show at North Hykeham in November and thought it was wonderful. The new CD which I bought on the night is also first class. We were determined to see the show again so have just received our front row tickets for September at The Sage at Gateshead. Looking forward to seeing you again, best wishes from Barrie and Judith.

  5. Michael Jeff Fahn Says:
