Galway folk/Americana trio close out a great 2018 with Black Box concert
AFTER A sold-out nationwide tour, The Whileaways play their final gig of 2018 in Galway city, with the high-flying trio set to transform The Black Box, bringing the warmth and intimacy of their unique live show to one of Galway's biggest venues.
The group’s third album, From What We're Made, was released a few months ago and has been hailed by critics as "their most impressive yet...laden with absolutely stunning melodies and harmonies" (Hot Press ). The Whileaways were also shortlisted in the Best Group’ and Best Album’categories in RTÉ’s Folk Awards. Ahead of their upcoming Galway gig, band members Noelie McDonnell, Noriana Kennedy, and Nicola Joyce sat down with me to reflect on an eventful year and look forward to their Black Box finale.
“It’s been a great year, the best for us since we’ve started,” Noelie declares. “This is our third album and we’ve had great reviews and played a lot of gigs around the country and there have been great houses at them all. There seems to be some momentum to the thing so we’re having a great time.”
