Mary Black comes to Kilkenny as part of her eagerly awaited first Irish tour in four years. Mary will be joined on stage by her best band - Bill Shanley, Pat Crowley, Nick Scott and Richie Buckley.

For the last quarter-century, singer Mary Black has been a dominant presence in Irish music, both at home and abroad. She has shared stages, tv shows and recording studios with some of the most revered performers of her time. The San Francisco Chronicle has described her as "One of the best interpretative singers around".
