The Hot Press Annual: Irish Women Take A Stand Together
A very special publication to end a thoroughly crazy year.
2020 has been the most extraordinary year since the end of the Second World War. With the Covid-19 pandemic raging, normal life was turned upside down. And musicians were faced with all sorts of new dilemmas. Against that backdrop, Ireland’s female artists decided to take a stand. Ruth-Anne Cunningham brought them together for Women In Harmony, taking a cover of The Cranberries’ ‘Dreams’ to No.1. As the follow-up ’Together at Christmas’ repeats that success, the Hot Press Christmas Annual tells the remarkable story of How Irish Women Artists Took a Stand Together. Plus:
- How local radio in Ireland brought light into the Covid darkness
- The dramatic end of Donald Trump’s presidency
- The explosion of Black Lives Matter;
- Ireland’s failure to reach Euro 2020.
- And: we name the Albums, Tracks, Movies, Books and Games of the Year.
- Starring: Bob Geldof, Angela Scanlan, Johnny Marr, Rob Kearney, Niamh Campbell, Damien Dempsey, Donal Ryan, Gemma Bradley, C'estlaviedmai and RTÉ’s Brian O’Donovan in Washington, among many more…
