    ANN SCOTT IN SESSION The Alternative To Sleep! Alt Rock, Metal, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Electro, plus the RTE 2fm studio sessions, & live music from across Europe.


    Ann Scott has been one of the most consistent Irish artists over the past decade. With the release of her fourth album 'Venus To The Sky', Scott has brought her songwriting to a new level; these beautiful songs with a distinctly individual identity. Having shared the stage with artists as diverse as Patti Smith, Howe Gelb and Fairport Convention, she has a wealth of experience.
