Eleanor McEvoy and Warren Malone
Thursday, September 12 | 8 pm
“McEvoy’s facility with everything from Tex-Mex country to straight up three-chord trickery is a timely reminder of what sets a musician apart: A hunger for exploration and a deep-seated talent for exploring the darker corners of both music and life” – The Irish Times
A multi-talented musician, songwriter and singer, Eleanor McEvoy is one of Ireland’s most accomplished artists and delivers an emotional and uplifting concert filled with passion and humor. She composed the song “Only A Woman’s Heart,” title track of the hit album A Woman’s Heart, which remains the one of the best-selling albums in Irish history. She has now released ten studio albums and enjoys continual and growing success in Ireland, the UK and across the world. An intimate and powerful live performer she has appeared all over the world on numerous TV shows, films, festivals, and concerts.
