The Stornoway Gazette wrote, “Her singing left me goose-pimpled all over – a sure sign of a gutsy, emotional delivery laced with meaning and pathos”. Live Ireland Awards has named Norah Rendell Best Vocalist of the Year two years in a row. Nominated as Traditional Singer of the Year for the Canadian Folk Music Awards 2008, Norah not only sings, but also plays flute and whistle "with a degree of style and sensitivity envied by many".
This concert will be a wonderful night of rare and moving traditional songs from her new album, "Spinning Yarns", carefully handpicked from sources from Ireland and Canada. Formerly the lead singer of acclaimed UK-based band, The Outside Track, Norah Rendell will be joined by some of the best traditional accompanists around at this concert; Brian Miller (Bua, Songs of the Northwoods) on guitar and bouzouki, Milwaukee-based Randy Gosa on mandola and guitar and Dáithí Sproule (Altan, Trian) on guitar and harmony vocals.
