KATHRYN CLEMENTS sings SONGS OF IRELAND A MARY BLACK TRIBUTE
Kathryn Clements is one of Australia’s finest exponents of Traditional Irish song. Kathryn’s haunting voice will move you to tears as she unfolds her beautiful stories and songs from the Irish tradition. However it is her capacity to engage with and entice her audiences, to open their hearts to all that the beauty of song can offer, that has people coming back asking for more!
Kathryn has a depth of experience teaching Traditional Irish singing in workshops at Port Fairy Folk Festival; National Folk Festival and National Celtic Folk Festival and she is a past Recipient of the Lis Johnson Memorial Award at the National Folk
Kathryn Clements is also a soulful and skilled singer songwriter whose songs speak to the very heart of what it is to be human. Her latest song "Little Boy Blue" features on her new, soon to be released CD, "Songs of Love and Freedom". This song was inspired by the ABC television program Revelation . It was written for all the young boys( and girls) and their families who were so tragically abused at the hands of the Catholic Church in Australia. My hope is that it helps spread their story and that the song also lets the victims and their families know that we hear and believe them.
S:et Us Free: is also featured on Kathryn's latest CD,. It is a song of hope and freedom, inspired by the book, No Friend but the Mountain, written on a mobile phone by Kurdish journalist Behrouz Boochani who, in 2013, was illegally and indefinitely detained on Manus Island. It was also inspired by all those who continue to be held illegally in detention throughout Australia.
