About this event

Eleanor McEvoy achieved star status in Ireland in 1992 when her song "A Woman's Heart" was the title

track for the A Woman's Heart anthology album. A Woman’s Heart has since gone on to become the best-

selling album in Irish history. She graduated from Trinity College Dublin with an honors degree in music

and was accepted to the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland as a violinist. She worked with the

symphony for five years before she finally took the plunge and left the classical world behind to

concentrate on her real passion—songwriting. Eleanor released her eponymous debut on Geffen records

followed by tours in the USA, Europe and the Far East. She moved to Columbia Records in New York for

her second album ‘What’s Following Me?’ The first single ‘Precious Little’ was a top 10 radio hit in the US.

‘Scarlet Angels’ was inspired by the recent ‘A Woman’s Heart Orchestrated’ concerts with the RTE Concert

Orchestra where McEvoy, Wallis Bird and Maura O’Connell all wore red on stage. A bit like the album as a

whole, the song is an homage to the healing power of friends and music.

‘Almost Beautiful’, a co-write with (ex The Beautiful South guitarist and songwriter) Dave Rotheray,

describes the mental decline of a loved one. Rotheray is quoted as saying “We went to the pub after

writing that one”

Through this fusion of bygone and modern, established and innovative, Eleanor McEvoy creates something

totally fresh but with a taste of the familiar…with, perhaps, a glass of red on the side.
