Eleanor McEvoy will feature in a concert at the Nenagh Arts Centre on Saturday, March 1st.

Described by Joe Duffy as ‘The Woman who gave her heart to the Nation’ Eleanor McEvoy brings her ‘Girl in a Black Car’ Tour to Nenagh Arts Centre on Saturday, March 1st.

Her performances are intimate, emotional, uplifting affairs in which she explores soul, love and humour, using own compositions and interpretations from other songbooks, with her unique voice and beautiful playing.

Formerly a session musician including a long stint with The NSO, Eleanor decided whilst with The Mary Black Band, to develop her solo career.

Eleanor shot to fame when a label owner heard her play a self-penned song that would give a name and title track to their planned all woman compilation album ‘A Woman’s Heart”, Ireland’s best selling album.

Simultaneously she was signed to Geffen where her eponymous album went on to sell 250,000 copies.

‘Precious Little’ was a Billboard hit and Sophie has become a worldwide focus and comfort to millions of young people with eating disorders.

Her most recent album ‘Alone’ is a collection of her best-loved songs performed solo.
