Fionna Kennedy - Forest Fest 2024

Singer-songwriter and IRMA Award nominee Fiona Kennedy  is a truly versatile artist. A sell-out gig in the iconic Sea Church, home of TV’s Ballycotton Sessions & a hugely successful  nationwide album tour this summer that saw Fiona play in many of Irelands top live music venues including Whelans Dublin, Monroes Galway & Coughlans Live Cork , places her firmly  where she belongs, in the top drawer of Irish female artists. The Cork native released her latest album, Find Me in March 2023. In its first week of release, Find Me was made Album of the Week on RTE Lyric Fm’s Marty in the Morning show and a single release ‘All Together Now’, featured on the RTE Radio 1 Recommends List , reaching no.4 on the Irish & U.K. airplay chart.

Kennedy has had her own one hour TV special on RTE, and has supported international artists such as  Carole King, Kris Kristofferson & John Martyn.  Her unique voice won her lots of radio airplay, many TV appearances & international tours, with several  Late Late Show appearances and performances in prestigious  venues like  The Cork Opera House & The Bottom Line New York.

Joining Fiona on her latest album tour is guitarist  Billy Kennedy . The duo, of the same surname but not related, create magic onstage with their warmth & musical craftsmanship. They’ve delighted audiences in venues from Cork to Belfast since the latest album launch, and will be joined by Fionas top class band for a very special Forest Fest 2024 performance.  Every show promises  great songs & stories following the life, loves and career of a musical warrior…not to be missed.
