I love to sing.  Whether I am in a group, in a choir, rehearsing on my own or performing in front of an audience – I am happy when I sing.  To sing is the quickest and easiest route for me to a state of peace and calm.

I have performed my own one woman shows at Dublin Fringe Festival, Bewleys Café Theatre and at The Performance Corporation’s Big House Festival.  I played in traditional, folk and choral contexts for many years performing solo numbers with Cantóirí Choir at The Village, Whelans, The Helix and at Dublin Fringe Festival’s Spiegeltent.

I sang in the citizens’ chorus of The Suppliant Women which opened Dublin Theatre Festival (2017) at the Gaiety Theatre

I have a first-class honours MA from the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance.

I began writing my own music in 2013 and I have since performed my own songs at Young Heart’s Run Free (in a line-up with Donal Lunny), at the Workman’s Club, the Back Page and with Mothers Artists Makers (MAM) at Árus an Phiarsaigh for Nollag na mBan, The MAM Behind the Mic at Smock Alley Theatre and at Project Arts Centre for International Women’s Day

I am an organiser and performer at MAM salons where artists share new work in a supportive environment.

I am currently working on my debut album and look forward to releasing my first EP in April / May 2021. I was delighted to share this selection of songs live at First Fortnight’s Cistin in January, 2021.
