SINGER/SONGWRITER Cathy Davey will play a rare intimate show this weekend. It will be an opportunity to hear some of the new material that will form part of her fourth album due out early 2015. The new record, Cathy admits, is “a year overdue”.
It has been four years since the release of ‘Nameless’ in 2010. It was Ireland’s top selling album on the week of its debut. Cathy Davey has released three albums to date, 2004’s ‘Something Ilk’, 2007’s ‘Tales Of Silversleeve’ and 2010’s ‘The Nameless’. She is a Choice Music Prize Nominee and Meteor Ireland Best Female Musician Award Winner.
Cathy performed a mesmerising version of ‘Wish Upon A Star’ with the RTE Concert Orchestra for RTE’S John Murray show; the recording was included in a fundraising album for the Depression Awareness charity AWARE.
Davey is also vocal on animal welfare issues. She is involved in the My Lovely Horse Rescue charity and brought along some of the horses and dogs they have rescued to the Trailer Park of Electric Picnic where they raised awareness and funding.
For her show in Dolan’s you can expect to hear scaled back versions of her hit singles Little Red, Reuben, Moving and Sing For Your Supper alongside new material.
Cathy Davey plays a rare and intimate seated performance in the limited capacity of Upstairs in Dolan’s this Friday January 30.
