Catching up with Abby Butler

Last time we heard from Limerick artist Abby Butler, she was releasing her fabulous debut single ‘Experiment.’ A lot has happened since then. I mean, a lot. But Abby’s been keeping plenty busy.

Despite there being a global pandemic on, Abby is keeping the music going. She has been studying online at Berlin’s prestigious Hochschule der populären Künste (School of Popular Arts) as part of an Erasmus program through the University of Limerick.

This week, Abby will be performing as part of HDPK’s “Flatten the Curve” online live music series. Join Abby on instagram (@hdpk_berlin) or youtube (https://www.youtube.com/user/hdpkde) on Tuesday, July 14th from 5pm to 6pm for an evening of music and craic.

Abby’s next release ‘Electricity’ will be coming out soon…so keep an eye out for more!
