Mary Black’s Final Farewell Tour!
IRELAND’S national treasure Mary Black will bid an emotional farewell to her Welsh fans at St David’s Hall next Friday (15 May).
After more than 25 years in the spotlight, the much-loved Dubliner has made the difficult decision to hang up her touring boots. But she believes behind a staggering legacy of 11 acclaimed albums, which have all reached Platinum status and spawned countless hits. Fittingly, her entire back catalogue will be celebrated in this sensational show entitled The Last Call.
Mary’s enduring success has proven that her depth of talent and her love of singing transcend the generations, as well as national and musical boundaries too. Incredibly, her classic triple-Platinum album No Frontiers spent more than year in the Irish Top 30 in 1989!
The astonishing follow-ups Babes in the Wood and The Holy Ground further enhanced her growing reputation, which later gained her a legion of fans including Van Morrison, Joan Baez and Emmylou Harris!
In 2008, Mary marked the 25th anniversary of her first solo album by releasing a special double album entitled 25 Years / 25 Songs. The compilation not only emphasised the strength of her work, but also her staggering range.
Making the heart-rending announcement in a New Year’s message on her website, Mary said: “Music has been so good to me, I’ve loved touring the world for the last 30 years….I have made so many friends and have countless fond memories from different corners of the globe. So to my fans everywhere I’d like to thank you and let you know that I hope to get back again to all my favourite places for one last tour – The Last Call.
Support on the tour is provided by Sharon Sharron, who is also one of Ireland’s most endearing voices. The County Clare multi-instrumentalist uses Irish folk music as a starting point, but also segues into reggae plus French, Canadian and Portuguese music. She even played accordion and fiddle for The Waterboys in their early days!
Don’t miss the chance to see the two legends of Irish folk music sharing the stage for one unforgettable evening at St David’s Hall!
