Mary McPartlan and Susan McKeown receive public kudos

The Irish Philadelphia website was full of praise for performances by Mary McPartlan and Susan McKeown (accompanied by Irish guitarist, Aidan Brennan), who sang separately and together on the stage at the Irish Center in Philadelphia on January 10th. The web review stated: “McKeown, who won a Grammy for her work with the New York-based klezmer group, The Klezmatics, performed an eclectic mix of Yiddish and Irish tunes along with her own inspired songs. McPartlan, whose voice has been compared to that of Dolores Keane, did several sean-nós and unaccompanied traditional songs. The two women and Brennan sang one song together in tight, gorgeous harmony.”
