Riverbank Arts Centre June 21st – Newbridge Junefest

Cluan

Happy Thursday everybody!!!!

It’s almost the weekend folks & the sun is shining again in Ireland so I hope wherever you are in the world reading this that your Thursday is a good one.

There’s something very exciting happening next Thursday :) June 21st, Clive and I are so excited to play The amazing RIverbank Arts Centre Newbridge as part of Junefest.

During the month of May I visited The Holy Family Secondary School, Newbridge College & The Riverbank Arts Centre to conduct songwriting workshops with the 3 groups. During the 3 hour workshop, the groups composed an original song. On the night of the 21st the groups will open the show performing each of their original compositions. The songs sounded amazing back in May so I really cannot wait to hear how they have turned out in the meantime.

I’ll be joined onstage by the wonderful Clive Barnes who will accompany me as well as playing his own amazing solo set.

Showtime is 8pm…..

On The Road Again

On the road again

Good evening folks :)

Hope you’re all feeling refreshed after the weekend…and it’s not over yet :)

I apologise for my lack of blogs lately, life has been a little hectic to say the least.

My most exciting news is that I’m back in the studio again and have finally started laying down track for my new album which I’m hoping to release later in the year. I’m recording it with the wonderful Thomas Donoghue at Broderick’s Studios Kilkenny and to say I’m ecstatic is an understatement.

studio

I had a minor set back in that I had to have a couple of wisdom teeth removed. It was a little frightening as there was a possibility of some nerve damage due to the position of the tooth. As a gal who’s business depends on her voice this was horrendous to hear. Thankfully I had an amazing dental surgeon, Darren McCourt in Dalkey and the procedure couldn’t have gone better. I found being unable to talk for a few days the most difficult thing about the whole episode and dying to get back into the studio.

I’m super excited to announce that I’ll be one of the headliners on some incredible European Festivals this July & August including Festdobrérybníky Slovakia & Prázdniny v Telci Festival Czech Republic alongside our very own Glen Hansard. Dates are being added daily so keep an eye out here a full list of dates and details. I’ll be accompanied by my brother John Parle (percussion) & Slovakian dobro player Milan Benkovi?.

I popped up to Belfast recently to appear on NVTV Belfast’s The Big Interview with a great old pal Robin Elliott. Robin and I have known each other for over 10 years and I was so happy with the interview. It really helps when it’s somebody that you know & trust who is doing the interviewing. Watch full interview and performance below

We had a wonderful night there before heading onto Galway city to play The Black Gate Cultural Centre which is the brainchild of a great friend and fellow musician Peader King.
