Artist Spotlight: The Whileaways

Three powerful forces in Irish roots music in their own right, 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 results captivating.

The band came to know each other’s singing over a number of years playing oil sessions in the folk melting pot of Galway city. Their recent highly acclaimed album Saltwater Kisses received four stars in the Irish Times and RTE Radio 1 Album of the week.

This is a unique combination of songwriters, singers and voices whose enthralling live performances have secured their firm footing in Irish roost music. Prepare to be spellbound.

The Whileaways will perform in the Village on Friday 25 August at 13.00, 15.00 and 17.00 at the Oak Tree (Tommy Hilfiger).
