Hazel O'Connor

"The sturdiness and earthy expression of her voice marvellous" Hot Press

with Cormac De Barra (Irish Harp) and Ruairí De Barra (Guitar & low whistle)

The rock star has returned to her Celtic soul folk-roots, live and on-stage. O'Connor performs with the celebrated Irish harpist Cormac De Barra and brother Ruairí on guitar and low whistle, in a captivating, intimate-acoustic special performance in the Cherrytree on Tues. 29th December.
Following the success of her recent sell-out UK tour with her autobiographical show Beyond Breaking Glass, Hazel O' Connor has fast re-established herself as a artist and performer to be reckoned with.  Her husky voice remains charged with passion and her enthusiasm, love of music, and wicked sense of humour, is ever present.
Cormac De Barra is not only one of her co-writers, but has also been her musical partner for some eleven years. De Barra, currently presenting TG4’S Imeall series, has represented Ireland internationally and currently also plays with Moya Brenna, Clannad, Ann Marie O’Farrell and Karin Leitner.   He has recorded three of his own harp-led CDs.   Ruairí de Barra has been playing with Hazel on and off for years now and the combination of the De Barra boys’ vocals with Hazels unforgettable voice is truly magical.  
>From initially catapulting to stardom with the starring role in Breaking Glass and the ensuing hits that followed, Hazel continues to tour extensively delighting audiences along the way, winning over fans old and new.  
No O'Connor show is complete without her original classics Will You, D-Days and Eighth Day or her new classics Rebecca, Driftwood, I'm Still Breathing and Acoustically Yours or the showstopper duet Tell Me Why with Ruairí.
