Mary Black, one of Ireland’s favourite artists, is regarded as one of the most important Irish vocalists of her generation, with multi-platinum selling albums and a string of achievement awards to her name. Mary’s enduring success has proven that her depth of talent and love of singing transcend the generations.
Mary was delighted to be back on the road again – her first live performances in two years were last October and as she said herself “it was magical to be back”. She continued into 2022 with more live dates and also found time to film for ’The Heart of Saturday Night’ and ‘The Restaurant’, while also featuring in a documentary entitled ’The Flourishing’ (all to be aired over Christmas).
Mary will perform with her band, featuring Bill Stanley (guitar), Pat Crowley (piano and accordion), Nick Scott (double bass), Richie Buckley (saxophone), and Liam Bradley (drums & percussion) playing favourites from her back catalogue, including songs we know by heart from ‘No Frontiers’ to ‘Song for Ireland’, ‘Past The Point Of Rescue’, ‘Carolina Rua’, ‘Katie’, ‘A Woman’s Heart’ and many more. Her Cork Opera House show is part of the 43rd Cork Folk Festival, running from September 29 – October 2.
