Mary Black has been a dominant presence in Irish music over the last four decades, both at home and abroad, bringing her songs and music, to growing numbers of fans; not just in Ireland where she has been a household name for decades, but all over the world.
As an award-winning solo artist with multiple chart-topping and critically acclaimed albums, Mary has been celebrated by an adoring public as well as fellow artists many of whom she has performed and recorded with over the years, including Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Joan Baez and Van Morrison.
Mary is delighted to be going back on the road to mark this 40th anniversary. With her outstanding band, she will celebrate her career playing the favourite songs from her extensive catalogue, songs that we’ve come to know and love over the years. Mary’s band features Bill Shanley (guitars), Pat Crowley (piano and accordion), Nick Scott (double bass) and Richie Buckley (saxophones).
