Actor/singer to launch album with Donal Lunny and Garry Ó Briain in Town Hall Theatre
WHAT HAPPENS when an actress hits a mid-life crisis and things start to unravel? Does she buy a Harley-Davidson and join a gang of burly bikers burning up Route 66? Or does she get a part in a TV drama series and go instead on an inner adventure that yields up unexpected treasures?
Ann Marie Horan did the latter, finding excitement, danger and an album of songs on a road less travelled. She now invites listeners to celebrate the launch of this debut album AM I AM with her, on Saturday December 9 at 8pm in the Town Hall Theatre.
A native of Galway, the well-known actress has been a regular on TG4’s Ros na Rún since 2007. She also worked for many years in RTÉ, on programmes such as Fair City and most recently she produced and performed her own one-woman show, Norah Barnacle-Signora Joyce. AM I AM was recorded in Creg na Vagabones, New Quay, Clare, by producer and multi-instrumentalist Garry Ó Briain, who composed arrangements combining Irish and other traditional styles to create a light and deft “folk fusion”.
