Whileaways returning to Westport

Going Out

NEW ALBUM The Whileaways’ fourth album, ‘In All Honesty’, will be released next month.


Galway-based folk band The Whileaways will make a welcome return to the stage at Westport Town Hall on Saturday, June 25, celebrating the release of their fourth album, ‘In All Honesty’.
Three powerful forces in Irish roots music in their own right, Noelie McDonnell, Noriana Kennedy and Nicola Joyce combine as The Whileaways to create a beguiling blend of harmonies, tradition and beautifully crafted original songs.
Since coming together in 2012 they have toured all over the world and been nominated for Best Group and Best Album in the RTÉ Folk Awards. The music press at home and abroad cannot get enough of them – describing them as ‘among the finest singers in the country’ (Hot Press) and their music as ‘profound and insightful, tightly woven, experimental, fresh and energetic’ (Irish Music Magazine).
The band are renowned for their live performances, whether that’s touring with their own material or with their much-lauded show Bird On The Wire, a collaboration with Pauline Scanlon exploring the songs of songwriting icon Leonard Cohen.
As an Irish Times reviewer put it, their music ‘hollers for a chance to be heard in a live setting, so rich is its lyrical tapestry’ – what better way to celebrate the return of live gigs?  Support on the night will be provided by Dave Clancy.

Doors 8pm, tickets €22 each.
