Louise Morrissey has long been regarded by folk and country music enthusiasts as one of Ireland’s vocal treasures. Louise will be joined by her brother Norman, who was an integral part of the folk group The Morrisseys. Following a nationwide sell out series of concerts last autumn the very popular duo are touring the country again performing in Theatres to very appreciative audiences.
Louise and Norman will reminisce about their days as The Morrisseys Folk Group who from the mid 70’s through to the late ’80 were highly regarded on both the national and international Folk Scene. They will sing their many chart topping hits of the time “The Old Rustic Bridge by the Mill” “Come Back Paddy Reilly”, “Galtee Mountain Boy”, “Sweet Forget Me Not” “Slievenamon” and many more too numerous to mention.
Multi award winning Louise is one of Ireland’s best female singers and will enthral and delight with her captivating vocals as she sings from her vast repertoire of hits from her days with The Morrisseys right up to the present day. Norman, considered one of the best interpreters of folk songs in the country will entertain with his humorous and witty recollections. Their combined singing creates a magic that can only be found in close family harmonies.
