MARIA DOYLE KENNEDY and HEATHERS (acoustic)
Maria Doyle Kennedy and Heathers, two of Ireland’s most remarkably gifted acts will conclude an Irish tour with an acoustic performance in Ballymaloe Grainstore on Sunday 8 September at 8pm. The tour is the first of its kind for these amazing artists who have never before performed on stage together.
A hectic 2012 saw the release of Maria Doyle Kennedy’s fifth solo record, Sing, on her own label, Mermaid Records. The album was written and recorded with her long-term partner in crime, Kieran Kennedy, who will accompany Maria in the Grainstore. Maria is also well known an actor, recently appearing in Downtown Abbey as the vindictive Vera Bates.
It's been strength-to-strength for Dublin twin sisters, Ellie and Louise Macnamara, aka, Heathers. Since releasing their second album Kingdom, they've signed recording deals in the UK, Germany and Canada. Their songs Forget Me Knots and Listen Don’t Speak both featured in the popular CBS TV show, 90210. This followed other placements on shows such as Mob Wives, The Voice, X Factor and Waterloo Road.
Many will recognise their tune, Remember When, as the soundtrack to a recent Discover Ireland 'The Fun Starts Here' TV commercial
This is a one-off opportunity to catch two stunning acts perform together.
