Colum Sands is a universal storyteller who draws on a long Irish tradition of humour and poetic musicality to weave songs for the world. Colum has performed solo and as a member of ‘The Sands Family’ in over thirty countries, he has presented countless radio programmes over 22 years with BBC and produced around one hundred albums, working with young musicians and veterans like Joan Baez and Pete Seeger.
One critic described Colum as a performer who “views the world with balanced, non-tribalistic humanity, breaking down all kinds of barriers and leaving behind optimism and appreciation of the power of the human
spirit over adversity.”
His new book, “These Quiet Places”, a collection of nature-inspired photographs, thoughts and verses are due for release in September 2022.
