Nuala Kennedy in Session

Mary Ann Kennedy with tracks from across the globe, plus a session with Irish flautist and singer Nuala Kennedy.

Nuala Kennedy's album 'Noble Stranger' has just been released on Nashville's Compass Records label. It confirms her reputation as a fine flautist and singer, as well as someone who is happy to go as far as she wants to with bold and experimental arrangements. She was brought up in Dundalk Co Louth on Ireland's east coast - she then studied in Edinburgh and Inverness, taking in Scottish song and instrumental traditions. She also works regularly with folk and indie musicians in the USA and Canada.
