Mary Black set for Lime Tree this weekend

AFTER a string of successful shows across the country last year Mary is delighted to be back on the road “it was magical to be back,” she says.

Mary and her legendary band will enthral audiences playing favourites from her back catalogue, 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. 

One of Ireland’s favourite artists, Mary is regarded as one of the most important vocalists of her generation; with multi-platinum selling albums and a string of awards to her name. 

Born into a musical family Mary began singing traditional songs at the age of eight.  With musician/producer Declan Sinnott, she recorded her first solo album, Mary Black in 1982. Black joined  De Dannan and toured with them around Europe and in the US. 

Mary’s popularity reached new heights with the release of the No Frontiers, in August 1989. It reached the top of the Irish album charts and stayed in the Top 30 for over a year.

In 1992 Mary joined forces with her sister Frances Black, Eleanor McEvoy, Dolores Keane, Sharon Shannon and Maura O’Connell to record  A Woman’s Heart.  The album sold over 750,000. Mary’s enduring success has proven that her depth of talent and love of singing transcend the generations.

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).

Mary Black and band will play Lime Tree Theatre this Saturday October 28.
