The Whileaways sees three distinct voices combine to weave a beguiling tapestry of harmonies and beautifully crafted original songs. Their sound is true, their delivery undeniably engaging.
These three singers could all front their own projects, and indeed have. With six previous albums to their collective credit, this is their debut as one.
Noriana Kennedy, Nicola Joyce and Noelie Mc Donnell came to know each other’s singing over a number of years, playing in sessions in the folk melting pot of Galway city. Dipping their toe in the water as a trio, they were hailed as ‘a knockout of the festival’ at the legendary Port Fairy Folk Festival in 2012. Overwhelming public reaction prompted a recording, and their debut album The Wildflowers recorded in a log cabin in Co Galway. Most certainly imbued with the sounds of their respective travels on both sides of the Atlantic, this debut brings something fresh to the familiar. More than that, it is beautifully original, in a way that doesn’t allow it to sit complacently in the Americana box. On their first visit to Denmark, The Whileaways will be joined by drummer Éimhín Cradock and Kelvin Busher on double bass.
