Three powerful forces in Irish roots music in their own right, Noelie McDonnell, Nicola Joyce and Noriana Kennedy combine as The Whileaways to create a beguiling tapestry of harmonies, tradition and beautifully crafted original songs. Using American folksong as a starting point, all three write and sing drawing on their own experience, and the result is captivating.
The band came to know each other’s singing over a number of years, playing in sessions in the folk melting pot of Galway city. Since their first release in 2013 they have performed on some of the most prestigious stages such as Tonder Folk Festival and were hailed as ‘a knockout of the festival’ at the legendary Port Fairy Folk Festival, Australia.
Their recent highly acclaimed album 'Saltwater Kisses' received four stars in The Irish Times and RTE Radio 1 Album of the week. Their sound is true, their performances gloriously engaging. Prepare to be spellbound.
