Autumn/ winter tour
Ahead of 2017 though, Eleanor is thrilled to be hitting the Irish roads again for a series of dates from October through December. “2015’s autumn / winter tour was such a success, I just had to do a tour this year also” said Eleanor. She continued, “2017 is already shaping up to be a busy one. I am really looking forward to heading back to Denmark for live shows. I plan on some further Irish dates also, however, I will be heading back to studio to record my next album too. It’s been a busy couple of years; I would not have it any other way. I love performing, but time in studio can also be relaxing and feels rewarding too when complete! Indeed planning for this is very exciting too, especially when paralleled with a busy gigging schedule!”
“Forever Young” - the album is available to buy across the country, together with itunes and amazon. The album features twelve beautifully arranged and performed tracks in Eleanor’s inimitable style accompanied by some of her musician friends including Paul Kelly (mandolin, fiddle), Eamonn De Barra (keys, whistle), Martin Brunsden (double bass), Jim Higgins (drums), Frankie Lane (dobro & backing vocals), Damien Mullane (accordion) with string arrangements by Gavin Murphy.
The album was recorded with the stunning Donogh Hennessy in Dingle. Donogh also plays guitar on the record and Gavin Murphy added some beautiful string arrangements to a selection of tracks on the album.
