Dublin-born singer-songwriter Melanie O'Reilly and an exciting musical ensemble join us tonight to celebrate the release of her new album, Thieves of Time, featuring songs inspired by Irish poets and literature. Melanie uniquely melds Irish cultural influences and American jazz with "breathtaking and amazing emotional intensity and sheer virtuosity," according to the Irish Times. The group of stellar musicians backing Melanie features her band Ashling, with guitarist Sean O Nuallain, fiddler Anne Goess, John R. Burr on piano, and Fred Randolph on bass, and additional guests Colm O Riain on violin and Ian Dogole (percussion).

Melanie, whose performances span the Edinburgh International Festival to New York's Birdland, is also a regular presenter for RTE Radio 1—Ireland's national broadcasting station—with her award-winning show Jazz on the Bay and more recently the Foxrock Folk Club.
