Mary Black sings Jimmy Mac
Mary Black and her legendary band make a welcome return to University Concert Hall in 2018, as part of the venue’s 25th anniversary celebrations.
In this unique concert, Mary will showcase the songs of one of Ireland’s greatest song writers – Jimmy Mac Carthy!
Timeless songs of a generation from No Frontiers and Katie to Bright Blue Rose and many more – songs so many of us know by heart.
Expect a special night where Mary brings her magic to these incomparable, shining songs and many more besides.
For over a quarter-century, singer Mary Black has been a dominant presence in Irish music, both at home and abroad. Mary has released 11 studio albums all of which achieved platinum sales status and spawned countless hits. She has shared stages, TV shows and recording studios with some of the most revered performers of her time. She has also played a front-line role in bringing Irish music, past and present, to an increasingly appreciative and ever-growing global audience.
In an industry noted for its fickleness and its almost insatiable need for fresh novelties Mary Black’s enduring successes have proven that her depth of talent and her love of singing transcend the generations, as well as national and musical boundaries too. She is indeed a real Irish treasure and her talent a gift from this small island to a grateful world.
