Nuala Kennedy in NYC!

The magically mercurial Irish flautist and singer Nuala Kennedy visits New York with her fantastic live band from 7-12th January 2010. She will also be appearing on WFMU. While in New York, she will be promoting her forthcoming second solo album TUNE IN
(Compass Records 2010)

Nuala Kennedy, although rooted in the Celtic music of her native Ireland and adopted homeland of Scotland, is increasingly recognized for her eclectic cross-genre work. She has recently worked and recorded with artists such as Will Oldham, Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub) Euros Childs (Gorky’s) the late great Oliver Schroer and Ziggy Campbell from the band FOUND.

  • ‘Kennedy doesn’t so much imbibe or inhale as swallow, whole and unadulterated, melodic and rhythmic influences from beyond her kith and kin. She is not only an exceptional interpreter of the tradition; her own music glistens with freshness’ — THE IRISH TIMES
  • ‘exceptional’ — IRISH TIMES
  • ‘Breathtaking’ — UK HERALD
  • ‘utterly beguiling’ — SONGLINES
