Mandy Connell plays 2 sets from 9.30pm
Mandy is bare-souled & luminous on stage. With acclaim throughout the folk scene, Mandy is admired for her songwriting and delivery, taking the Declan Affley Award (National Folk Festival) in 2005, the Maldon Minstrel Award (Maldon Festival) in 2006 and coming second at the Port Fairy Songs of Peace and Tolerance Competition in 2006 for her song ‘Riots in Redfern’. She has toured the UK, formed Trad 5 piece ‘Stray Hens’, and continues to write original music.
Selling out the 2010 album Tall Tales & Pretty Colours, and due to record the Girl Who Fell Off The Wall in 2015, Mandy has collected a steady following with endorsements from Paul Brady, Weddings Parties Anything, and from well known songwriters Judy Small and Eric Bogle as much for her reinterpretations of their work as for her own songs.
