Tony Kenny is one of Ireland’s most beloved artists, having sung in countless musical productions such
as Joseph, starred in the world famous Jurys Irish Cabaret for more than 20 years with the legendary
comedian, Hal Roach – Ireland’s King of Blarney, and won many awards for his work over the course of
decades.Kenny has entertained millions of people in Ireland, and across the U.S. in dozens of coast to
coast tours, including Carnegie Hall.
Richie Hayes has been in the entertainment world from the age of four and has appeared in all aspects
of the entertainment industry including Theatre (think Aladdin and Cinderella) and Television (The
Voice of Ireland and Celebrity Bainisteior), and finished as a runner-up in The Voice. Richie is that rare
commodity: a talented singer and brilliant comedian. His debut single, One Voice, reached #3 in iTunes
charts, and he subsequently had four top ten singles in the Irish Charts. His sensational new album,
What About Me, is now on general release. He has toured America and Canada extensively, entertained
on many Caribbean Cruises and spent a season in Celtic Storm – The Show, in Dublin.
Bernadette Ruddy, the girl with the golden voice and golden red hair, hails from the West of Ireland. A
small village called Attymachugh at the foot of the Ox Mountains gave birth to this unique female voice
that is turning heads throughout Ireland. With her rich earthy tones and touching delivery, Bernadette
is the ultimate Irish female ballad singer of today; truly an Ambassador of Song for Ireland. Pete St.
John, one of Ireland’s most beloved songwriters (composer of such blockbusters as The Fields of Athenry and Dublin in the Rare Old Times), recognized Bernadette’s incredible talent, wrote a song especially
for her, and which she then recorded: A Song for Mayo.
The Trinity Dublin Band creates that terrific traditional Irish sound with David Hayes, recognized as
one of the finest musical directors in Ireland, on piano, Peter Brown on accordion and Sarah Rogers on
violin and fiddle.
