Méav takes to the stage with her band in the Sugar Club on October 23rd to celebrate the launch of her new album, The Calling. Produced by the legendary Craig Leon, (Blondie, Talking Heads, Ramones, Pavarotti), The Calling zoomed straight into the Irish charts at number 3. Eamonn Carr of the Herald calls it “the most exciting development on her stellar CV”.

Every album Méav recorded with Celtic Woman reached number 1 in the Billboard World Music Charts.
Now she returns to her folk roots with this intimate concert . This is a rare opportunity to hear her sing live in Dublin.
Méav and her band will take you on a journey across Ireland, England, Scotland, Brittany, Galicia and America with fresh interpretations of Ewan McColl’s The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, Sandy Denny’s Listen, listen alongside newly written songs in the folk tradition. Don’t miss it.
“Tucked away at the end of Méav’s beguiling new album, The Calling, is her beautifully-poised version of the folk classic Black is the Colour. The song is clearly the most adventurous track on an album of complex and layered musical treatments, which occasionally echoes Clannad in the harmonies but is built on a personal, unique template” Paddy Kehoe, RTE TEN.
“A cracking new solo album that just oozes class” Joe Giltrap, Irish Post
