Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Marcia Bellamy is a Brighton-based mezzo-soprano, who earned her masters in music at the University of Washington. Bellamy's vocal expertise ranges across opera, music theatre, and sacred music. She has sung throughout Europe and North America in concert, opera, and recital. She learned her craft as a soloist at the Deutsche Oper Berlin before embarking on a freelance career.

Joe Heaney (AKA Joe Éinniú; Irish: Seosamh Ó hÉanaí) (1919 - 1984) was an Irish traditional (sean nós) singer from County Galway, Ireland. He spent most of his adult life abroad, living in England, Scotland and New York City, in the course of which he recorded hundreds of songs. A magnificent singer in both Gaelic and English, Heaney sings in sean-nos, the highly ornamented style of traditional Irish song.
