Tour Ireland with me, June 2-11, 2015!
Billed as ‘tours for people who hate tours’, Inishfree Ireland Music Tours is all about connecting and hearing live music in Ireland. We go to three counties in 9 days ~ Cork, Kerry and Clare ~ visit historical sites, castles, ruins, rugged coastlines and more ~ and hear live Irish trad music. I’ve already got a good list going for the 2015 trip, so if you’re interested in knowing more contact me through the Contact page or go to the Inishfree Ireland Music Tours website. I’ll be posting a separate page with more specifics soon. Click here
The Heart of Ireland
I’ve been thinking for some time of putting together a program of all Irish music, past & present, and
‘The Heart of Ireland’ is the result. A collection of fiery jigs and reels, humorous and mournful songs, airs, stories and poetry – all of the things that make the Irish culture so special. I can do the program solo or with one or more of the many talented Irish traditional players who live in the area.

Based in Ann Arbor, Emmy recipient Kitty Donohoe draws from her Irish heritage as well as her American 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
