    Debbie Anthony had done it all. She’d married a great guy, raised some great kids and sent them off well-prepared into the world.

    But for all she had accomplished, one goal remained. Luckily, she’s taking care of that too. Just listen to More To Be Said and you know it’s true: This lady was born to make music and claim her place among today’s best country vocalists.

    Labelled as the Hottest New Group out of Northern Ireland, (Chicago Irish American News) Connla have been quickly making an impact on the folk/traditional scene. Songlines magazine made Connla their “must see act” for the tour of the UK and stated “A band this young shouldn’t be this good”. Their sensitive and innovative arrangements of traditional and modern folk songs and tunes, have helped them create a sound which is very identifiable as Connla. Irish Music Magazine stated; “Consider this your early warning system, there is something serious on the horizon and that creative storm is Connla” (Irish Music Magazine).

    Hailing from the cities of Armagh and Derry and are made up of Ciara McCafferty (vocals), Ciaran Carlin (Flute/Whistles) Paul Starrett (Guitar) Emer Mallon (Harp) and Conor Mallon (Uilleann Pipes/Whistles).

    The group is a full mix of musical knowledge, training and performance experience unheard of in a group this young. All are close friends and/or family who go way back together in the Northern musical scene. Each has won several performance awards. The resulting music is satisfyingly complex, yet directly and easily accessible. This is that rare group that is musically attractive to the experienced trad purist, as well as the music fan who knows nothing of the music. There is the mix in all of their music of great lift to the music and deep insights in the songs, all coupled with top musicianship and taste. Truth be told, it may never have been pulled off before by a group this young. Yesterday and tomorrow’s trad today. Here comes Connla!

Their dreamy, atmospheric soundscapes, pop sensibility, and relatable storytelling paint a picture of the times and places wherein the songs were created. An accomplished singer, pianist, guitarist and songwriter, Joyann Parker is frequently associated with passion, power and soul. She sings from the gut with an authenticity seldom found in today’s vocalists.
