Maria Doyle Kennedy and Crystal Bowersox (Episode #1403)

KQED Life: Sun, Aug 24, 2014 -- 11:00 PM

Maria Doyle Kennedy gained international acclaim for her roles on esteemed films and television series like Dexter, Downton Abbey, and The Tudors. From Ireland, her fifth solo release 'Sing', is a 10-song collection co-written with husband Kieran Kennedy, featuring duets with Damien Rice, Paul Brady and, on 'Yes We Will', the legendary John Prine. Richly imagined, 'Sing' marries folk forms with torch-song melodies, flamenco rhythms, avant-rock, Celtic, Mediterranean and Appalachian airs. Crystal Bowersox catapulted from the coffeehouses and subway tunnels of Chicago to millions of homes across America when she placed second in Season 9 of American Idol by her emotive folk-rock-country style. Old soul voice, care-free style and "don't mess with me" attitude set her apart from the other contestants and landed the self-taught songstress performances with the like Joe Cocker, Harry Connick, Jr., and Alanis Morrissette. Her latest is 'All That For This'.
