Eleanor McEvoy set for 1st March date at Nenagh Arts Centre

Eleanor McEvoy brings her ‘Girl in a Black Car’ Tour to Nenagh Arts Centre on Saturday 1st of March.

 

Her performances are intimate, emotional, uplifting affairs in which she explores soul, love and humour, using own compositions and interpretations from other songbooks, with her unique voice and beautiful playing. 

 

Formerly a session musician, including a long stint with The NSO, she decided whilst with The Mary Black Band, to develop her solo career.

Eleanor shot to fame when a label owner heard her play a self-penned song that would give a name and title track to their planned all woman compilation album ‘A Woman’s Heart”, Ireland’s best selling album. Simultaneously she was signed to Geffen where her eponymous album went on to sell 250,000 copies. ‘Precious Little’ was a Billboard hit and Sophie has become a worldwide focus and comfort to millions of young people with eating disorders. 

 

Her most recent album ‘If You Leave’ was her first studio album since ‘I’d Rather Go Blonde’ in 2010. The collection features eight new songs and four interpretations including ‘God only Knows’, ‘True Colours’, and ‘Lift the Wings’ from ‘Riverdance’. Recorded live in the studio with some of Ireland’s finest players the album shows Eleanor in a more bluesy neo-retro style.

 

Tickets for the Nenagh concert are €18 and are available online from:www.nenagharts.com, by phone on 067 34400, or by calling to the Arts Centre in Banba Square.
