Another star performer for this year’s Boyle Arts Festival is Maria Kennedy Doyle.
Maria is an Irish singer, actor and filmmaker with strong links to Boyle. She has sung live with Snow Patrol and has spent more than two decades performing all over the world before audiences at Glastonbury, Oxygen and the Cambridge Folk Festival and in small intimate theatres. She honed her craft as a performer with Hothouse Flowers and The Black Velvet Band before performing in the movie ‘The Commitments’and by then, Maria’s reputation was strong enough to earn her a place singing on the album The Lady Sings The Blues alongside Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Nina Simone.
