From her heyday in Carnegie Hall to her much-anticipated show at the Great National Hotel in Ballina this week, Irish singing treasure Dolores Keane has overcome almost every obstacle to finally arrive at her 2019 Comeback Tour.
The Galway native has been singing since childhood, just like the rest of the Keane family, which of course includes her famous sean nós singing brother Sean. The songs she sings to this day were handed down from generation to generation and will never be forgotten as long as she’s living.
Surmounting cancer, a difficult break-up and alcoholism, Dolores says she is happy to leave the past behind her as she makes her remarkable comeback.
“I’m back singing better than ever before and really looking forward to travelling the long and winding roads wherever they lead me,” she said.
Under the new management of MC Promotions, Dolores delivers a unique and soulful distinct voice that captures every audience that has the luck to be in her presence.
Few Irish artists can catch their listener’s hearts and explore the history of our beautiful little island through song as Dolores does.
Her ability to interpret the death of culture and the fathomless loss of emigration in the space of a four-minute song is second to none.
The night begins at 7pm with local and award-winning musicians entertaining you on arrival before the show starts at 8pm. The bar will be open from 7pm until the show starts and will reopen again at the midway interval for a top up.
After the show, Dolores will be doing a meet and greet and is looking forward to seeing all her old friends. This is a must-see event, a comeback that has been years in the making. Book now to avoid disappointment.
