Having been often acknowledged as Ireland’s most successful female singer/songwriter, Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council is delighted to welcome Eleanor McEvoy back to the Old Courthouse, Antrim on Friday 30 October at 7.30pm.

Eleanor achieved star status in Ireland in 1992 when her song, A Woman's Heart, inspired the title for, and appeared on, the A Woman's Heart anthology album. It has since gone on to become the best-selling album in Irish history. Its 20th anniversary in 2012 saw nine sold-out “Woman’s Heart” shows at the Olympia Theatre. Since then, Eleanor has gone on to become an artist and performer known throughout the world.

Her critically acclaimed canon of work spans eleven albums, forty singles, and appearances on numerous compilation albums. As well as enjoying personal chart success, numerous cover versions of her songs have been performed by such artists as Emmylou Harris, Mary Black, Phil Coulter, and Mary Coughlan. Her latest album, Stuff, described as “a standout” by the Irish Times, also received rave reviews around the world as she toured to promote it in Ireland, the UK, Europe and Australia.
