Female Singer of the Year – Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh

Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh
Beginning today, we will be putting up a vid and pic of each of our 2019 Livies winners for you to see and hear.
This is Muireann Nic Amhlaoibh. She was with Danu for years before setting off on a very successful solo career. Her latest album is a wonder of a thing called, Foxglove and Fuschia. She has not yet released a new vid from that album, and we want you to see her, so we include this gem of her version of The Leaving of Limerick from the series, The Transatlantic Sessions. BTW, she is also an incredible flute player. Listen to that voice, and realize she was pregnant with her second child at the time she filmed this, making both her and her voice even MORE beautiful–if that is possible!! This is the third time she has been named our Female Vocalist of the Year, and there is a reason. She is the best traditional singer in Irish music. Period!
