Coming to the GiG Room, Sept. 15, 8.30pm, Tickets €12/10

The Whileaways 26g

The Whileawaysthree distinct voices combine to weave a tight tapestry of captivating harmonies. They prefer minimal instrumentation on their recordings, allowing their distinctive vocals to be the focus of their music. The trio balance folk songs from both sides of the Atlantic with beautifully crafted original songs, in a way that is inventive and undeniably engaging.


The Whileaways are Noelie McDonnell (vocals, guitar), Noriana Kennedy (vocals, banjo) and Nicola Joyce (vocals, baritone ukulele). The three are accomplished folk musicians in their own right with more than a dozen recordings to their collective credit. Their third album launched in July 2018 represents a maturation of the band and their creative aesthetic and they’re looking forward to giving audiences a taste of this in Kinvara on September 15th.
