Exciting times are coming up for the former BIMM Dublin student as she is preparing to release her second studio album ‘Reflections of a Celtic Heart’ on March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day.

The concert will be billed as “Sina Theil & band performing the songs of Liam Clancy and other Irish Favourites” featuring songs like ‘Red Is The Rose’, ‘The Dutchman’, ‘Caledonia’, ‘Grace’, ‘The Parting Glass’, ‘Green Fields Of France’ and many more.
Each venue will include special guests including Billy Condon (The Dubliners, Ray Lynam, etc.), renowned Midlands 103 radio presenter & singer Joe Cooney, leading Joe Dolan tribue Paschal Brennan, singer-songwriter Colin Kenny and Joan Healy, as well as Naas based teenage band Fault in the System and more (check venue for details on special guests).
Although born in Germany, Sina is fast making a name for herself on the Irish Music Scene, having to date scored fourteen #1 singles and a #1 debut album in the Irish Country Download Charts with her label Downda Road Productions. Her songs have been played over 5,500 times on Irish radio on stations all over the Country including Cork’s C103 and 96FM, Midwest Radio, Clare FM, Radio Kerry, Shannonside FM/Northern Sound, Midlands 103, as well as daytime play on RTE Radio 1 and airplay on stations located in the USA, New Zealand, Canada, France, and the UK to mention just a few. She also presents her own weekly radio show on Carlow FM. Furthermore, her single ‘Good To Be Back Home’ ft. Sabrina Fallon was also shortlisted on the much sought after “RTE Recommends” List and the most played song of all genres on Co.Mayo’s regional station Midwest Radio.
Sina, who won “Hottest Act in Irish Country Music” at the latest Hot Country TV Awards 2019 describes her sound as Americana/Folk/Country Rock. Although a lively performer, Sina has a great ability for storytelling which is why she developed a special liking for the music of Liam Clancy during her travels gigging around Ireland.
“Back in 2015 I knew little about Ireland and its people; but I had heard this much: the Irish love their music and the “craic” is mighty! That was all I needed to know. I packed my bags, grabbed my guitar case and headed off on an adventure, pursuing a lifelong dream of making a career in music. Little did I know I was about to enter a world of stories, songs and tales like I had never known before. Throughout many late nights I heard songs that spoke of heartbreak and hope, life and death, freedom and sorrow, history and longing. I fell in love with Celtic music; it’s passion and powerful storytelling.
On the new album I got the chance to collaborate with some amazing Irish musicians and hope, from the bottom of my heart, that we did these beautiful songs justice and you enjoy our renditions.” Sina Theil
