Paloma Faith headlined the Saturday night of Groove Festival at Killruddery in Bray.
The set list was heavily based on her current album “A Perfect Contradiction”, ignoring a lot of her biggest hits prior to this year.
Paloma Faith doesn’t stand still on stage, even climbing onto a piano at one point. The crowd loved it, especially this year’s hit singles “Can’t Rely On You’ and “Only Love Can Hurt Like This”
Faith entertained the crowd with anecdotes between songs, addressing being caught out lying about her age by joking about it, as well as trying to entertain the crowd by putting on a local accent.
The biggest laugh was reserved for her telling when an RTE journalist addressed her as “So …… Imelda” before then singing the praises of Imelda May.
Disappointingly, some of her biggest his such as “Thirty Minute Love Affair”. “Upside Down” and “New York” weren’t performed, but there were some covers, the best of which was her version of “Teardrops” by Womack and Womack before ending with the lead single from her current album “Can’t Rely On You”
