Join us for an unforgettable night in conversation with renowned actress and singer-songwriter Maria Doyle Kennedy, interspersed with live performances of her own material from herself and husband, Kieran Kennedy.

With a singing career that has spanned nearly 30 years and an acting career that has spanned 27, Maria has established herself as one of Ireland's most prolific artists and entertainers.

As an actress, she is best known for her extensive television roles as Patsy on Father Ted (1998), Catherine of Aragon on The Tudors (2007–2010), Vera Bates on Downton Abbey (2011), and Siobhán Sadler on Orphan Black (2013–2017).

As a musician, she is well known for her worldwide hit folk albums Mütter and Sing. Her new self-titled album was released in 2017. The first single from the album was Pride, a song she wrote as a response to the Irish Marriage Referendum of 2015. Maria has just collaborated with Feist & Jarvis Cocker on a video for the song Century. The project was a crazy mashup of Westside story and Thriller and featured Maria & Feist as dance-off gang leaders. Maria writes and performs with husband Kieran Kennedy and along with the new album they have also completed their first short film *A Different Kind of Day*
