One of Ireland's finest signers, Maura sings Irish songs and covers songs from American writers. A powerful singer with an entrancing stage presence, this is a rare chance to see Maura, in what is billed as her last US tour. Maura will be accompanied by two back-up players on guitar and bass, and she will sing from her entire career. Sample songs included here are "Summerfly" and "Blue Chalk," both by US writers (Cheryl Wheeler and John Gorka), and the Irish song "West Coast of Clare." She will also sing some a cappella songs, the traditional Gaelic of the tune/song Danny Boy is on her last CD, Naked with Friends.
