Performers Biographies

LIZ MADDEN

"If anything sets Liz Madden apart from other Celtic/Folk singers, it's her amazing and authentic voice"

Irish singer/songwriter Liz Madden is an artist that you do not want to miss live. With her incredible stage presence and pristine, emotional voice, it's no surprise that her voice and songwriting skills have been described as "second to none". Liz has toured globally and nationally, headlining events such as the Festival Interceltique de Lorient(France), World Music Festival(Israel), 7th Folk & Art Festival(China), Albuquerque Folk Festival(USA), Catskills Irish Weekends(USA). Other performances include the Nobel Women's Initiative for the Nobel Peace Laureates, US Airforce, Children in Crossfire Charity, The Met Club(NY), The Sky Club(NY) and the Emerald Voices St. Patrick's Day Festival.

Liz's new album has just been released, "Legacy", written and produced with Fionan de Barra (RUNA, Clannad, Riverdance) and featuring Emmy winner Joanie Madden (Cherish the Ladies) and guest artist Eamonn de Barra (Slide). Already heralded as a new sound in the Celtic-Folk music genre, "Legacy" features 14 songs that range from the ever classic “Will You Go Lassie Go” to the lamenting overtones of “Diamond & Rust” and following up with the more modern “Noon or Midnight.” This album will take you from North America to Ireland (and back again!) on the wings of Madden’s flawless vocals and a surrounding eclectic aura of chants and instrumentation.

Liz recently recorded with Billy Sherwood of YES, performing the song "Blackbird" for the new Acoustic Tribute to the Beatles, which also features Ann Wilson (Heart) and Jack Bruce (Cream). Other collaborations to date include, Richard Cottle (Tina Turner, Eric Clapton), Paul Barrett (U2, Sinead O'Connor) and world renowned jazz guitarist Nigel Clark (Carol Kidd). Liz was formerly the front-woman for international duo RUA and is a member of the world music group, SHISHONNAH.

Da Terra Meiga

With its English meaning, "from the witch land", this musical group states its place of origin (Galicia, Spain), in its original language, Galician. The original music of Da Terra Meiga is like Celtic folk with flamenco taste. The band consists of one guitar and two voices, although often different musicians are invited to play, a big list of spanish, american and latin music, with the primary band members, Laura Cruz and Ruben C. Ares. They’ve lived in Albuquerque for about two years, and they recorded their first album, “Guitar and Voice”, in the same city.
