The Tipperary tourism group Hidden Tipperary, in association with Thurles Chamber of Commerce are proud to confirm that Folk Singing Star and Composer Nora Fogarty will be performing at a seated concert in “The Factory,” Hayes Hotel, Thurles, tomorrow night Friday August 16th 2013 at 9.00 pm.
In the vein of singers like Mary Black and Delores Keane, but with none of the copy cat characteristics one associates with many others in her profession, this Kilkenny born vocalist will be performing Country, Ballad and Folk Songs from her massive répertoire; songs indeed which she is frequently asked to sing at previous concert events.
Just a few of the songs that music lovers can expect to hear from the exciting voice of Nora will include “You Needed Me,” (latter version best attributed to multiple award-winning Canadian singer Anne Murray), the late American singer-songwriter Randy VanWarmer’s “Just When I Needed You Most,” Christy Moore’s “Go, Move, Shift,” Joni Mitchell’s ” Both Sides Now.”
Then add songs like “Caledonia,” “The leaving of Nancy,” “Go Lassie Go,” (Latter version best attributed to Tipperary’s late great Liam Clancy) and “Shattered Dreams,” which radio listeners have heard her play regularly (Featured in our video above,), then “believe you me,” you are about to experience one serious night of quality free entertainment.
I kid you not, from the sheer power of her vocal ability, her professionalism, not to mention her superb guitar playing aptitude; Nora Fogarty’s solo concert performance on Friday night next, is one event just not to be missed.
As stated, entry to this event is totally free to all and the Hayes Hotel in Liberty Square will also be providing free finger food to the assembled audience, during the shows interval.
Note: Be warned – Doors will close sharp at 9.00 pm, so make sure you are on time to grab a drink & a seat.
