STRANRAER’S Ryan centre will host an Irish singing legend on Friday when Eleanor McEvoy arrives in town.

The Music Town crew will welcome the inspiring songer/songwriter whose song ‘Sophie’, taken from the album ‘Snapshots’, has touched the hearts of people around the globe who suffer from eating disorders, thus leading to over two million hits on YouTube.

Eleanor McEvoy

Her massively successful song ‘Only a Woman’s Heart’ went on to be one of Ireland’s biggest selling records and landed McEvoy a major deal with Geffen Records. McEvoy, an illustrious musician of the highest standard, is a northsider from Ireland’s capital who got her start in the grimy, religion-bound, pre-Celtic Tiger Dublin. Escaping the norms of her environment through music, youth orchestras and traditional festivals, McEvoy went on to study classical and contemporary music at Trinity College Dublin before embarking on her signature songwriting and musical career that now hails her as one of Irelands finest and best-known female acts.

Eleanor will be supported by Kirkcudbright singer/songwriter Bruce McKenzie and 15-year old local lass, Jennifer McMaster.

Tickets are £15.
