Winner of Waltons World Masters / RTE lyric fm Gospel & Soul Competition

Mavis Staples has chosen the winner of our Waltons World Masters / RTE lyric fm Gospel & Soul Competition: Tig Linn! We understand that it was a difficult decision, but while Mavis was amazed at the quality of the gospel-related acts who participated in the competition, Tig Linn’s blend of the African roots of gospel with Irish sounds, as well as their performances at events related to social protest, spoke to her the most.
Tig Linn will now perform as Mavis’ support act before she and her group take to the stage on Saturday, 3 November.
We would like to thank all of the wonderful groups that participated in this competition – and especially our five outstanding finalists. Gospel and soul are alive and well in Ireland!
