Dara Records are proud to announce the release of the outstanding new single The Secret of Living written by Eleanor McEvoy and featuring Eleanor, Sharon Shannon, Mary Coughlan, Gemma Hayes and Hermione Hennessy. The Secret of Living will be availble on iTunes for download Friday 27 July. It is the first single to be taken from the forthcoming album A Woman’s Heart – 20th Anniversary Collection, due for release in September. Only A Woman’s Heart, which featured Eleanor with Mary Black , was a ground-breaking hit in 1992 and contributed to the phenomenal success of the album A Woman’s Heart.
The highly anticipated new Collection will feature a unique mix of new recordings and hits from the original Woman’s Heart line-up, supplemented with the addition of Gemma Hayes and Hermione Hennessy – both of whom are currently appearing on the live ‘Woman’s Heart’ tour.
‘A Woman’s Heart’ is live at the Olympia Theatre for 5 nights, 29 Aug – 2 Sept and features performances from Eleanor McEvoy, Dolores Keane, Hermione Hennessy, Sharon Shannon, Mary Coughlan and Gemma Hayes. Tickets are on sale now from €25 including booking fee.
Earlier this year all four of the Woman’s Heart 20th Anniversary Concerts at The Olympia Theatre were performed to sold out audiences. If you missed the shows or would like to see them again you’re in luck. The Woman’s Heart 20th Anniversary Concerts are returning to The Olympia for five nights from 29 August – 2 September. Tickets are now available through Ticketmaster ie.
The Woman’s Heart 20th Anniversary Concert is the subject of a documentary by Kiara Murphy. The documentary will air tonight, 28 April, on RTE Radio 1 at 6pm. The documentary is also available as a podcast on the RTE Radio 1 website. Kiara, her friends, and family attended one of the concerts to present Eleanor and the other women in the show a cake with thanks for the songs they have loved for years – songs they have passed on to their daughters.
MOSCODISC is pleased to announce the Monday 23rd January 2012 UK release of Eleanor’s new single Harbour, originally featured on Eleanor’s 2010 album I’d Rather Go Blonde. Eleanor will embark on a series of UK concerts in January, including the Song For Ireland at Celtic ConnectionsFestival, Glasgow.
Details of the new release are available on the official UK Harbour single press page.
I really enjoyed doing the Weekend Wogan Show – it was a joy from start to finish. Was bowled over by the lovely warm reception from Terry himself and am really excited from the reaction to the show, the tweets and messages are still flowing in. You can listen to the both the interview and session on the Weekend Wogan Website.
