Irish America Invites You to Julie Feeney Live in Concert!
By Irish America Staff, April 23, 2012
CONTEST: Irish America readers who love captivating musical performances, smart lyrics, brilliant orchestration and delightfully whimsical headpieces should get excited. Julie Feeney, the rising star of Ireland’s contemporary music scene is coming to New York for ten nights of unforgettable performances at the Irish Art Center’s Donaghy Theater – and Irish America has two pairs of tickets for two lucky readers and five copies of Julie’s album pages to give away!
Feeney, who has been compared to artists ranging from Lady Gaga and Philip Glass to Elvis Costello and David Bowie, made her New York debut in 2011 to critical and popular acclaim. The New York Times described her as “charming, urbane and dreamy,” and The Washington Post called her “The Emerald Isle’s Original.” Her beautiful and highly inventive sound blends her background in classical music, her expertise composing for a wide range of instruments and her ear for a pop sound that is always catchy and never cliché.
Her second New York run, from April 25th – May 6th, will feature music from her two albums, 13 Songs and pages, and perhaps some new surprises. Co-directed by PS122’s Vallejo Gantner, Julie will be joined by a small and eclectic orchestra of strings, singers, recorders, sticks, guitar, keyboards, and trumpet.
