Rachel Harrington at the Shanachie
Tuesday May 5th at 8.30 pm
Seanachie Bar, Dungarvan, County Waterford, phone 058-46285
Reared among the Pentecostal pines of Oregon, Rachel Harrington has been doing things in the wrong order for quite some time. She'd had extensive radio play before performing her live show, and she was opening for Grammy winners and nominees before releasing her first record.
“A roots musician in the truest and purest sense... like reading a beautifully written novel ... haunting.” ~ NetRhythms
“Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch...Rachel Harrington. These comparisons don’t seem far-fetched at all given the extraordinary excellence of this debut.” ~ Glitterhouse
