Julie Feeney

Saturday August 17 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Julie Feeney
Julie Feeney’s sell-out shows have riveted audiences and critics all over the world. She performs as solo, duo, with ensemble, with choirs or with full orchestra. She composes, arranges and orchestrates all of her own music and writes all of her words. Her three albums have been widely critically acclaimed. She is winner of the Choice Music Prize for ‘Irish Album of the Year’ for her self-produced debut album 13 Songs. Her third album Clocks went straight to No. 1 in the Independent Irish Album Charts on its Irish release. It was voted ‘Best Album’ in The Irish Times ‘Album of the Year’ and it was also shortlisted for the Choice Music Prize.

In her live shows she combines her “mesmerizing stage presence and eccentric pop genius” (Hot Press) with her unquestionably original sound; and her innovative, avant-garde approach, while rooted in classical music, straddles both the pop and theatrical worlds.

Julie is a true artist with immense vision. Sharp witted, unpretentious and fiercely passionate she is a genuine artist and a hugely enjoyable performer. This ‘not to be missed’ concert will see Julie performing music from her 3 albums and will be accompanied by the brilliant Cormac De Barra with whom she has performed with regularly over the years.

Áras Éanna are delighted to have Julie as an Artist in residence for the month of August. Inis Oirr is a place very close to her heart.
