Mary Black returns to the Royal Theatre Castlebar for one night only on Tuesday August 4 as part of the World Fleadh Festival.
Mary has long held the attention of the followers of Irish music as one of the finest female vocalists in the world, with her distinguished career spanning over 25 years from her early days in Dublin folk clubs through ever-escalating success with seven platinum solo albums one of which — No Frontiers — spent 56 weeks in the Irish Top 30. Needless to say Mary Black is a seminal figure in Irish musical history and one of the artists responsible for its relatively recent blossoming on a global level.
Mary released her first eponymous solo album in 1983. It reached number four in the Irish charts and is ranked among the best Irish albums of the early eighties. It won for her the Irish Independent Arts Award for Music, the first in a staggering list of music awards that have continued to the present day.
So why not make a night of it in Castlebar, one hour from Sligo, the festival club will take place after Mary Black with live acoustic acts. Overnight accommodation offers available in theatre hotels.
