Mary Black has confirmed Claire Sproule as special guest at her Waterfront Hall appearance this weekend. Claire will perform solo, and then later along with Mary.

2008 marks the 25th anniversary of Mary Black’s first solo album. To celebrate this Dara Records have issued a special compilation double CD – the concept: 25 YEARS, 25 SONGS. The album went straight to no 1 in the Irish album charts, and is now in it’s fourth week in the top spot..

The album contains 25 songs spanning those 25 years and widely considered to be Mary’s most popular recordings. Four of the older recordings have been specially remixed for this new compilation and all the tracks have been fully remastered from the original master tapes. Mary has also recorded two brand new songs to include in the compilation, Sweet Love and If I had To Go.
