Album Notes
Originally from Vancouver, British Columbia, Norah Rendell is a consummate musician that specializes in the traditional folk songs and dance music of Ireland and Canada. Norah was named "Best Vocalist of the Year" by the Live Ireland Awards in 2011 and 2012 and was nominated for "Best Traditional Singer of the Year" by the Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2009.

From 2005-2013, Norah toured throughout Europe and North America as the lead singer and flute player of award-winning band, The Outside Track with whom she released three albums to critical acclaim. Norah also performs with the Two Tap Trio (St. Paul), the Máirtín de Cógáin Project, the Canadian folk string quartet, the Fretless and Paddy O’Brien’s Doon Ceili band in Minnesota.

In addition to collaborative projects, Norah has built a reputation for herself as a solo artist. She has been featured as a soloist at the Celtic Connections festival in Cape Breton, Pierre Schryer’s Canadian Celtic Celebration in Thunder Bay and at the Celtic Junction in Saint Paul.

Norah has performed live on MPR's Heartland Radio, CBC's Canada Live, BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio Scotland and Radio nan Gaidheal. Her recordings have been broadcast on the CBC, BBC, RTÉ Radio na Gaeltachta (Ireland) and on folk shows across Canada and the United States.

Norah is passionate about exploring the traditional music of her native country, Canada, and has been researching and learning rare songs from field recordings made in Canada during the 1950’s folk revival, many of which have roots in Ireland and Scotland. She is currently collaborating with Bush fellow Dáithí Sproule, guitarist Brian Miller, multi-instrumentalist Randy Gosa and harpist Ailie Robertson to arrange this exciting new body of material.
