When Nanci Griffith called Frances Black “the sweetest voice of Ireland,” she was paying tribute to someone who has been one of Ireland’s best-loved and most enduring artists since the late 80s, with a string of best-selling albums, awards and other accolades behind her. Now Yew Wood Venues is absolutely thrilled to welcome Frances to Youghal and St. Mary’s Collegiate Church for her first ever concert in this historic town. Frances, of course, is a member of the well known musical genious familty “The Black Family” and began singing with her older siblings when she was only 17 years old.
The extent of Frances’ popularity and talent has been reflected in the awards and accolades that she has received for her albums and live performances. She has twice been the recipient of one of the highest honours in Irish music, the prestigious Irish Recorded Music Association’s Best Irish Female Award, and was also delighted to receive a National Entertainment ”Personality of the Year” award, as it has always been vitally important to her to connect with her audiences during a performance.
