How it’s New York: Highline Ballroom is in NYC, and Julie Feeney has played in NYC before, where we love her! Listen to Julie on this podcast, and read reviews that have been put up about her here and here.
Blogger Kathy Callahan saw Julie at Highline a few weeks ago and found Julie mesmerizing! Kathy, like me, lives in New Jersey where it’s been a disaster area (literally). Thanks to Kathy for getting this to us in time for the CD release in Ireland!

Julie Feeney gives us introspective musings on life with precisioned rhythems and a decidedly Ancient Irish beat.
