Carrie Baxter tells Andy about an upcoming gig in Waterford

Waterford singer songwriter Carrie Baxter told WLR she's looking forward to performing again in her home city.

The Cork Road native has a string of gigs and festivals coming up over the summer, including All Together Now at Curraghmore over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

"I'm excited but I'm also very nervous. There's nothing more nerve racking than playing to loads of people you grew up with," Carrie told Andy McCloskey on The Spin Home. 

Before that, Carrie will perform an intimate gig in The Market Bar on John Street in Waterford City, on June 25th.

She also spoke to Andy about new music that she's been working on, that she can't wait to share with fans.
