Niamh Regan + Christof Van Der Ven
This April, two superbly talented songwriters, Niamh Regan from Ireland, and Christof Van Der Ven from The Netherlands, team up to perform 8 double headline shows across the UK.
London-based Christof van der Ven has built a truly impressive CV over the past few years, supporting the likes of Bon Iver, Lisa Hannigan, and Nick Mulvey. In that time, he has released two LPs – Empty Handed (2018) and You Were The Place (2019) – alongside multiple EPs, the latest of which is ‘Haul’ (2023). 2024 promises more new music from Christof, as he prepares to release his next record. Recently, Christof headlined a tour in various venues across Europe and the UK, and was an Artist in Residence as part of Sounds From A Safe Harbour – where he collaborated with Niamh Regan, amongst others.
Niamh Regan’s 2020 debut album ‘Hemet’ introduced her as an artist with a gift for crafting folk-tinged songs with a quiet, reflective intensity. The release started to make waves and achieved over 1 million streams on Spotify and led to nominations for both the RTE Folk Awards and the Choice Music Prize ‘Album of the Year’. Since its release, Niamh has embarked on headline tours around Ireland, UK, Australia, and more. Pairing this with many festivals and a variety of support opportunities with artist such as CMAT, Villagers, John Grant, SOAK, Patrick Watson, Sam Amidon, Cormac Begley, Sorcha Richardson, Josh Ritter, and many more, which has led to Niamh’s new-found confidence and joy performing on stage. Niamh will release her second album, ‘Come As You Are’, in May 2024 via Faction Records.
Both artists are excited to hit the road together and share their music with fans in the UK.
Niamh says, “I’m looking forward to seeing more of the UK and playing in so many gorgeous intimate venues. Sharing the headline with Christof is going to be a real joy and I hope we see you along the way.”
Christof adds, “Following a recent tour with my band, I can’t wait to strip things back to their core and sing my little heart out all across the UK. I’m excited to be travelling to both new and familiar places – then add to this that I get to do it all in the company of Niamh, and I couldn’t ask for a better trip.”
