Maura O'Connell Tickets - A True Paradox in the Music IndustryWhy is she a paradox? It's simple. This November lady born in the year of 1958 enjoyed the music industry in a big way, singing lead for a Celtic group called De Dannon -- and yet, she was not a traditional Celtic singer. Moreover, she was a resident of Nashville -- and yet, she's not American! To make it even crazier, get this: she collaborated with the New Grass Revival, which supports bluegrass -- but in no way is she a bluegrass performer. Her name is Maura O'Connell -- not only a paradox, but a phenomenon. She was born in County Clare, Ireland, singing at an early age, but jumped on the music bandwagon by signing with Sugar Hill Records in 2000 after finishing six albums all by herself!
Maura O'Connell Tickets - The Music of MauraWalls and Windows was her definitive album with the label, and it was released in 2001, followed by Don't I Know in 2004. Some of her singles include 'Summerfly,' 'Feet of a Dancer,' and 'Blue Train.'
Maura O'Connell Tickets - The Sound of O'Connell Entering Your SoulHer biggest asset was the fact that she became a star in not just one country -- but two, namely Ireland as well as America! You've got something going if you can touch hearts across the whole world. That's for sure.
