Saturday February 16th 2013 – Theatre Royal, Waterford

“I have found my voice,” sings Maria Doyle Kennedy on ‘The Silence’, a track from her beguiling new album, Sing. And what a voice. Sometimes melancholy, other times joyful, always passionate – elemental folk shot through with a potent soulful impulse.

Yet as a singer, Maria remains one of Ireland’s best kept secrets. Indeed the raven-haired Dubliner is probably more familiar as either Katherine of Aragon, nanny to the son of a serial killer or the estranged wife of the lovely Mr Bates from the three award-winning television series, The Tudors, Dexter and Downton Abbey.

That’s set to change with Sing, her fifth solo release proper. The 10-song collection was co-written with husband Kieran Kennedy, and features duets with Damien Rice, Paul Brady and, on the jawdroppingly beautiful ‘Yes We Will’, the legendary John Prine.
