Long time friends and musical collaborators, Irish singers and musicians Nuala Kennedy (Edinburgh/IRL) and Eamon O'Leary (NYC/IRL) have toured widely together both as a duo and as part of 'The Alt' alongside the celebrated Irish guitarist John Doyle.
Internationally recognised members of the traditional music community, the duo is noted for their instrumental skills as well as a diverse repertoire of traditional and contemporary songs. Both are lovers and researchers of traditional Irish/Scottish song who also write songs.
With an engaging stage presence and understated virtuosity, they present a timeless section of songs and instrumentals.
Join Nuala and Eamon for a memorable and intimate evening in Humph Hall as their songs range from the ancient Irish tradition to reflections on the present day.
