The American pop star will join the Young Dubliners for three Irish dates.
Cynthia Catania is returning to Ireland with a run of shows supporting the Young Dubliners in November.
Catania will support the Celtic rock band for three dates as part of their Irish tour. The pop star joins the Young Dubliners at the Belfast Empire music hall on November 1st, The Quays bar in Galway on November 4th and the Workman's Club in Dublin on November 7th.
“I'm over the moon about coming back to Ireland,” Cynthia told Hot Press. “I'll be using my ‘solo' set-up, which includes samplers and FX boxes. Fun stuff! I’m really looking forward to it.”
New Jersey-born Catania earned a reputation for herself alongside Dublin native Annmarie Cullen as part of Saucy Monky. The pair fronted the indie-pop band that once shared the Oxegen stage with The Black Eyed Peas and The Cure before they disbanded.
Saucy Monky caused a stir in the LA music scene with their debut album Celebrity Trash which arrived in 2003 earning the group frequent radio play and television appearances. They split up before sharing their sophomore album — 2004’s Turbulence — due to internal band struggles.
Catania recently dropped the Near Death remix of ‘Forever For Goodbye.’ The singer released ‘Last Beer’ back in February and premiered her eerie and beautiful song ‘Suitcase’ on the Hot Press YouTube channel back in December 2020.
The songwriter will be joined by Celtic rock royalty in the Young Dubliners. The band was founded in the late 80’s by Dublin natives Keith Roberts and Paul O’Toole. Beloved in Ireland for their distorted twist on classic Irish ballads like 'The Rocky Road To Dublin,' the band are a fan favourite for their energetic live shows.
