The 2016 Inishfree Irish Music Tour to Ireland was again, fabulous. 24 people, mostly strangers at the start and really good friends at the end, rode a bus, sang (a lot), drank pints (quite a few), ate many bowls of Irish stew and seafood chowder (mmm), saw spectacular sites (every day), and listened to outstanding music every night. Here are a few scenes from this year.
Based in Ann Arbor, Emmy recipient Kitty Donohoe draws from her Irish heritage as well as her American and Canadian roots in her music, which is rich, earthy and compelling, making good use of her gifts for storytelling, her love of language, and her ear for melody.
“Kitty Donohoe is a true treasure – a rare songwriter with tremendous range, a beautiful voice and an ability to write haunting, melodic and literate songs. She deserves a wider audience.” All Music Guide
