Mary launched her album at An Droichead on 2nd February 2013 to a packed audience in the intimate venue. This marked her very first headline gig as a solo artist, and included guest performances from Brian Finnegan, Niamh Parsons and Tíona McSherry, along with up and coming acts Síoda and Cathal O’Neill.
North has been receiving great reviews, and you can get a taste of the critical reception to the album on the Reviews page. Colin Irwin, fRoots Magazine, said:
‘She has long established her credentials as an All-Ireland singing champion and maturity as an assured and classy song interpreter … It is impossible to think unkindly of an album that is so immaculately presented and professionally performed’
The album featured as album of the week on BBC Radio nan Gaidheal’s Caithream Ciúil and is one of Mike Harding’s Top 10 picks for the year in April’s edition of fRoots magazine.
Mary will be performing at a selection of concerts and events throughout the year, and will also be touring with Niamh Parsons & Tíona McSherry (Sí Van).
