Segment 1: Awareness by Niall McGuigan

Niall McGuigan is releasing a debut album that has been brewing for 6 years. Its called Awareness. Niall is releasing the album on the 25th March in St. Anna Church where his works from the album will be performed by the SUSO Gospel Choir. Niall has worked in bands with a variety of musical genres and is even a music therapist. I spoke to Niall as he was heading into the Ruby Sessions in Doyles pub on College Street and he told me about the musical journey he has been on and how it found its way into the album.

Corrected: The launch is St Ann's church, not St. Anna's
