FionnualaFaganMUSIC
 
 
Fionnuala Fagan-Thiébot is a musician, composer and installation artist. Her work is lent a great authenticity and beauty by being founded on the life-stories of real people; stories she has listened to with a musician's ear, and which inspire songs and performances of compelling simplicity and power. In so doing she is concerned with documenting and sharing the life experience of "ordinary" people. 
Fionnuala’s music has been featured on BBC Radio Ulster and RTE 1 and her performance and installation piece Homebird has been performed at The Ulster American Folk Park, The Pic ‘n’ Mix Festival 2011 and The Cathedral Arts Quarter Festival 2012. In May 2012, Fionnuala worked in conjunction with the Metropolitan Arts Centre’s (MAC) Learning and Participation department in collaboration with Isobel Anderson on the project, Stories of the City: Sailortown. In December 2013, the MAC hosted Fionnuala’s performance and installation piece Dreaming Protected Me and in the winter season of 2014, she was their “Artist in Residence”. In December 2015, Fionnuala graduated from a PhD at the Sonic Arts Research Centre, QUB, for which she was awarded a DEL studentship in August 2011. The albums produced for Fionnuala’s verbatim song-writing projects are currently archived in the Linen Hall Library and The British Library.
