Folk ‘super group’ set for the Alley Bar

28 February 2018

Acclaimed three piece act ‘The Whileaways’ are set to bring their beautifully crafted original brand of folk to the Alley Theatre Bar on Thursday March 15th.

The three piece band of vocalists, which features Noelie McDonnell on guitar, Nicola Joyce on ukulele and Noriana Kennedy on guitar and banjo, were all outstanding musicians and performers in their own right before they formed the folk super group in 2013.

Using American folksong as a starting point, they cut their own trail through the undergrowth of roots music.

They began life playing sessions in the folk melting pot of Galway city and since their first release five years ago they have performed on some of the most prestigious stages and festivals around, wooing audiences and reviewers.

Their recent highly acclaimed album 'Saltwater Kisses' received four stars in The Irish Times and RTE Radio 1 Album of the week. Their sound is true, their performances gloriously engaging.

Prepare to be spellbound by The Whileaways.

Tickets for the gig which starts at 8pm are priced at £8 and available from The Alley Theatre Box Office on 028 71 384444 or online www.alley-theatre.com.
