Irish roots music with The Whileaways

16th September 2018 @ 1:00 pm

Noelie McDonnell, Nicola Joyce and Noriana Kennedy

Three powerful forces in Irish roots music, Noelie McDonnell, Nicola Joyce and Noriana Kennedy combine as The Whileaways to create a beguiling tapestry of harmonies, tradition and beautifully crafted original songs. All three write and sing, drawing on their own experience, and the result is captivating.

These three singers could all front their own projects, and indeed have, with six previous albums to their collective credit. Having toured separately, they came to know each other’s singing on home ground while playing sessions in the folk melting pot of Galway city.

Dipping their toe in the water as a trio, they were hailed as ‘a knockout of the festival’ at the legendary Port Fairy Folk Festival, Australia in 2012, and have continued to make waves in the folk music scene both at home and abroad since then. Prepare to be spellbound.
