Clonard Welcomes Ireland’s Sweetest Voice

By Staff Reporter

West Belfast is delighted to welcome Frances Black to Clonard Monastery this evening.

Renowned for her energetic stage presence and vocal tone, the Irish songstress is sure to leave the crowd wanting more when she takes to the stage in a few hours.

Described by Nanci Griffith as “the sweetest voice of Ireland”, Frances took the music scene by storm in 1992 when the lovely Wall of Tears, which she had recorded with Kieran Goss, and the rousing After the Ball, which she had recorded with Arcady, were placed on the album, A Woman’s Heart.

Her own best-selling album Talk to Me was number one in Ireland for 10 weeks and she had a massive hit single with All The Lies That You Told Me, penned by the late, great Christie Hennessy.

Six more best-selling solo albums captured more hearts around the world over the next 20 years.

Intelligent and articulate, with a keenly developed social conscience, Frances is renowned for her rendition of Legal Illegal, a song by Ewan McColl that powerfully rails against injustice.

Don’t miss this night to remember!
