ONE OF the west of Ireland's finest songwriters, Noelie McDonnell, has resumed solo duties and will play Monroe’s Live, along with his band, on Thursday January 7 at 8.30pm.
Coming from Tuam, a town with a significant musical tradition, Noelie has released numerous solo albums and released original material as part of The Whileaways and The Cabin Collective. He has appeared alongside numerous artists over the years including John Martyn, Iris DeMent, Luka Bloom, and Mundy.
After releasing a new album with The Whileaways earlier this year, Noelie got together with long term collaborators Dave Clancy, Larry Kelly, Will Merrigan, Jamie O'Neill, and the Berrill brothers Matt and Pete, and began putting together new ideas. The fruit of that labour is a plethora of new songs which will feature on Noelie's new solo album, due for release later this year.
Tickets are €10/8. See www.monroes.ie
