Ursula Connolly – Kiss My Arts: Episode 227
Multi talented Leitrim Village resident, Ursula Connolly joins Mary Blake on Kiss My Arts this week to chat all about her creative life and times.
Best known as for her warm chocolaty voice, Ursula started singing as a child with her sisters Inez and Rita Connolly. Her parents passed on their love of all things creative and she cut her teeth on close harmonies at a young age.
Ursula talks about her early experience singing with the Connolly Sisters at the Universal Folk Club in the 70’s and her subsequent time on the road with Fallen Angels before launching her solo career.
Ursula has released two albums. ‘Picture of Myself’ and ‘Devil May Care’, and today she sings one of her original tracks, ‘All I Want’ and ‘Godspeed’ by the (Dixie) Chicks.
Ursula is a qualified vocal coach, helping other singers to find their true voice. You may also have seen Ursula at the Strandhill People’s market where you can view her crafts, dolls and quilts under the name Auntie Kitty’s button box.
Find Ursula on Facebook Auntie Kitty’s Button Box or The Village Voice Studio or call her on 0872377520 for bookings or enquiries.
