Nuala Kennedy (flutes, whistles, vocals)
Traditional singer, flute player, tunesmith and songwriter Nuala Kennedy grew up playing music in Dundalk, Ireland and later moved to Edinburgh, Scotland. The combination of the best of two cultures, Scotland and Ireland, is what has made Nuala the artist she is today. In 2011 Nuala completed a Masters Degree in Composition and Performance and the result was an even deeper understanding of, and commitment to traditional music, which is evident in the powerful performances she gives, wherever she is on tour.
Nuala released her third solo record 'Noble Stranger' (Compass Records) in 2012 to critical acclaim. The Nuala Kennedy Band were nominees in the 2013 BBC Alba Scottish Traditional Folk Awards.
"She is not only an exceptional interpreter of the tradition; her own music glistens with freshness.”
