Maria Doyle Kennedy 2009

One of the most remarkably gifted and versatile female Artists ever to come out of Ireland, Maria Doyle Kennedy has forged a name and held her own in diverse arenas from film and TV to her career as a singer-songwriter.

She has had roles in films including The Commitments, Moll Flanders, The Matchmaker, The General, and Tara Road.
Subsequently she went on to make a name for herself in TV roles. She appeared in Father Ted and more recently Maria had substantial roles in TV series Sorted and now the currently running critically-acclaimed show The Tudors where she has taken the complex and challenging role of Queen Catherine of Aragon and invested it with the requisite air of regality.
Fans of the actress have said that they are sorry when she leaves the screen.
A remarkably gifted singer-songwriter Maria has drawn superlatives from many music reviewers and publications for the unique and sometimes dark mood she creates in remarkable, startling images in her songs.

Her latest offering Mutter is being hailed as her best work to date and contains songwriting of a typically outstanding calibre. The songs have a depth of meaning and an array of images that is found in the music of very few female performers.
Shades of Patti Smith are seen in her music. Her words are brutally honest and candid and speak to our real-life experiences.
It is considered remarkable by some that Maria DK juggles her thriving artistic career with the challenge of motherhood.

Barbara from Maryland US, is a big fan and has this to say of her: “Anyone who can be such a huge force of creativity musically, artistically and with her acting and still manage to be an amazing Mom, hats off to her. You know, there isn’t much she can’t do, now is there?
“MUTTER is her best work to date, that much I am sure of. It is on near constant play. There is just so much in that CD, not a dull moment. Every song has a place, and every one is important to the whole. She is the most multi-faceted, brilliant musician and actress out of Ireland.”
So much has already been achieved in the career of Maria Doyle Kennedy and there is no doubt that there are many more achievements to come.

(In February 2008 and 2009 Maria received IFTA awards for Best Actress in the Television production of “The Tudors”. In October 2008 Maria received a Canadian Gemini Award. Also received were Tatler woman of the year awards and Outstanding actress at Monte carlo Monaco film awards. She has twice been nominated for a Meteor Award).
