Eileen Laverty

Featured Vocalist

Eileen Laverty loves an adventure.

Originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland, Eileen’s family emigrated to Canada when she was six and, while she calls herself a Prairie girl, her Irish roots run deep. With the heart of a storyteller and a poet, her “deeply intimate and stirring vocals and her slightly Celtic-influenced songwriting” (Heather Kitching, Folk Roots Canada) leave you with a sense of hope.

Eileen musical adventures began with a traditional Celtic band in her hometown of Saskatoon. It wasn’t long before she set out on her own, performing solo in folk clubs and taverns with a setlist of Irish ballads, a few pop covers, and a clutch of original songs.

Over the past two decades, Laverty has entertained audiences of all ages, as a solo performer and with her band. Eileen’s track record includes several songwriting accolades and numerous radio and television appearances. A look at the acts she has supported will underscore her universal appeal: the late country legend Kenny Rogers, rocker Tom Cochrane, Irish star Mary Black, Canadian Tenor John McDermott, and folk icon Ian Tyson.
