SONGSTRESS Karen Egan brings her new sound to Dolan’s this week, the latest in a whistle stop Irish tour to launch her new album Charlatanne.
Egan, part-French, part-Finnish, part-charlatan - she says! - has a new show as she releases her new album, moving from cabaret to a hip-hop pop-tastic sound.
Formerly one third of successful all female comedy singing trio The Nualas, the much-loved multilingual chanteuse and comedienne is excited about the new album, works of all original songs and music.
Living between Finland and Ireland has given her the opportunity to “draw from two completely contrasting cultures and influences” and many of the songs from this new album were composed during this very creative time.
An actress who has featured in the hit BBC drama Ripper Street, Ms Egan - a former barrister - she was most recently artist in residence at the Irish Cultural Centre in Paris. See www.dolans.ie.
