I had the pleasure of catching up with Julie Feeney after last nights launch of the Schola Cantorum in St Nicholas Church in Galway. Julie had just landed back in Ireland after a very successful stint performing in New York at the Irish Arts Center. The New York Times gave her a rave review and she seems to have really loved the energy in the city. Julie also tells a wonderful story about how she ended up playing a couple of shows in Canada and having in her own words ‘the best week of her life’. This accomplished composer singer and producer has a lot on her plate over the coming months and is presently composing an opera and also has a tour of Ireland to prepare and organise in November. In the middle of all this activity she has also just recorded her third album which is due out at the end of the year.
