Album Release - Nuala Kennedy - Noble Stranger

Although her repertoire is rooted in the traditional music of her native Ireland and adopted homeland of Scotland, Nuala Kennedy has also gained critical attention for her eclectic cross-genre work, featuring liltingly beautiful vocals, adventurous instrumentation, and an imaginative mix of influences. For her Noble Stranger album release tour, her American band accompanies Kennedy, consisting of Kyle Sanna (guitar) and Dana Lyn (fiddle). She has performed and recorded Will Oldham (Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy), Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub), Norwegian musicians Frode Haltli and Vegar Vardal, and the late Canadian composer Oliver Schroer.
On her third solo album 'Noble Stranger', Nuala is accompanied by her Scottish touring band: percussionist Donald Hay, guitarist Mike Bryan and mandolinist Iain Macleod.  The tight musical arrangements and deep grooves on the record attest to the staying power of her new road-tested tracks. Classic traditional songs such as ‘My Bonny Labouring Boy,’ and ‘Matt Hyland’ re-emerge as a natural part of this recording where a small but beautiful vintage Casio keyboard also inspired new songs, including ‘Gabriel Sings’.

"A flute player and composer of remarkable finesse…digging deep to discover her fullest potential." - Irish Times
"Cheeky, dynamically textured and full of ideas, this distinctive sound is new but already fully formed." - Scotland on Sunday. Source Record Company Press
