Norah is Top TIR “Best Female Vocalist of 2016”
Chicago Irish American News has named Norah “Best Female Vocalist of 2016” in their annual Top TIR (Tradition In Review) awards! This is Norah’s third time winning this award as a soloist (she was named “Best Female Vocalist” in 2001 and 2012), this time alongside legendary Irish and folk music artists such as Máire Ní Chathasaigh, Buttons and Bows, Colin Farrell and James Keelaghan.”
“No one has ever won Female Vocalist of the Year three times. Wait. Norah Rendell just did. We became aware of her with Outside Track, and since leaving the group sometime back, she has gotten better-as if that were possible. Her voice is as true as are her musical values. We can listen to Norah sing all day. Wait. We have. Her new album, Spinning Yarns, is a project of which she can be proud. Keep your eyes out for her musical pals, Norah Rendell and The Lost Forty, on tour. She somehow finds time for family AND running one of the most successful music schools in America, The Center for Irish Music in Saint Paul. She is wonderful. End of statement, end of story.” – Bill Margeson.
“We can listen to Norah sing all day.” – Bill Margeson, Chicago Irish American News
