Further Event Information
Described by Joe Duffy on Christmas Eve as ‘The Woman who gave her Heart to the Nation’
Her performances are intimate, emotional, uplifting affairs in which she explores soul, love and humour, using own compositions and interpretations from other songbooks, with her unique voice and beautiful playing.
Formerly a session musician, including a long stint with The NSO, she decided whilst, with The Mary Black Band, that she should cash in the savings and develop her own career.
One week her life changed. Mary’s label owner heard Eleanor play a self-penned song that would give a name and title track to their planned all woman compilation album… ‘A Woman’s Heart”, Ireland’s best selling album. Simultaneously she was signed to Geffen where her eponymous album went on to sell 250,000 copies. Precious Little was a Billboard hit and Sophie has become a worldwide focus and comfort to millions of young people with eating disorders. Her most recent album Alone is a collection of her best-loved songs performed solo.
