Helen Webb and Liam Mac Amhaíla

Liam is a singer/songwriter and musician with his musical roots in Connemara in the west of Ireland. He has toured extensively in America, the Uk and Europe performing beautifully crafted traditional and original ballads, and is known for his passionate,strong and inspiring vocal delivery.  Liam’s main musical focus has been Celtic and traditional Irish with an emphasis on the music of Connemara and Clare.  Liam’s music draws upon his Archaeological background and knowledge of ancient civilizations with references to ancient Irish mythology and folklore, to weave a tapestry of intrigue, and the magic of the ancients.  This combined with Rythmns from Africa which are brought into the mix by Helen’s  kora and percussion/drumming, creates a strong and original contemporary musical style which conveys their deep and spiritual love for nature and indigenous world cultures, with notably powerfully executed vocals from both artists.  Helen is a vocalist, composer and musician with a string of performance credits ranging from Opera at Covent Garden to Rock and Soul in London’s West End, she is also an Ethnomusicologist  with a background in African music and she is from a mixed race Carribbean/English background.  Since arriving in Ireland with the intention of discovering more about the true spirit of Irish music, Helen has developed her flute and whistle skills and learned many Irish songs through immersing herself in the musical culture of the west. Her moving music carries a strong spiritual message of personal power and freedom, and is often based around traditional African riffs and cyclical patterns. Her powerful and emotive vocal style blends harmoniously with Liam’s, resulting in An Anú’s signature, passionate and impressive vocal delivery.
