Mary Black has long been considered one of the finest female vocalists in the Celtic world. An unparalleled interpretive singer with a beautiful, dynamic voice, she draws on her traditional Irish folk and ballad background to create music that soars with a contemporary edge. She's touring in support of Stories from the Steeples, her much-anticipated first studio album in six years.
Special guest Róisín O has been busily earning credits as a singer and songwriter since she left school not too many years ago. She’s supported dates with the Coronas, Imelda May, Brad Paisley, and Robert Cray, recorded with Paul Brady and Mary Black, and performed at numerous festivals, including Ireland’s popular indie-rock Indiependence. Her song “Drifting” was chosen for the latest Woman’s Heart Now compilation. Come autumn 2012, the stand-out acoustic rock sound of Róisín O and her band, Alan Tully (guitars, vocals), Brian Murphy (bass, vocals), and Ruth O’Mahony Brady (keys, vocals), will be featured on the group’s debut CD, The Secret Life of Blue.
