A change in the ‘Tour Ireland with Kitty’ plan
Since I wasn’t able to line up enough reservations for the Ireland tour for this summer we’ve decided to look ahead to Summer 2015. The idea is the same ~ 9 days in Ireland with lots of music, comradery, visits to ancient sites and more. If you think you may want to be onboard for next summer, contact me now to get on the list ~ and the first thing is to decide which of the three summer months we want to go, so if you have a preference, tell me that too. You can find out a lot more about the tours at Inishfree Tours.
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
