An accomplished singer and actress, she has appeared in over 40 musicals and operettas, among them Anna in The Merry Widow, Margot in The Desert Song, Saffi in The Gipsy Baron, Rosalinda in Der Fledermaus, Nancy in Oliver, and Julie in Showboat. She has played principal boy in pantomime at the Olympia Theatre and The Gaiety Theatre.
Siobhán has performed in The Percy French Story throughout the country and tonight will celebrate Percy French’s life and work through his songs.

Rory O’Sullivan lives in Wicklow Town. He is a young, up-and-coming poet whose influences are two of the greats: Yeats and Kavanagh. ‘There is a stillness in music and words that captures me. Music and words come hand in hand, let them help you, let them heal you, for that is their purpose, and that's why I write,’ says Rory.
Winner of the Xmas Factor ’09 Writing competition held in Wicklow Library, Rory is also a keen songwriter and musician and plays in the band, ‘Rebel Diamond’.
Colm Lynch is a South Dublin singer-songwriter who has been tirelessly gigging, both at home and abroad, over the last few years. He’s a powerhouse live performer, capable of summoning up the kind of fiery passion reminiscent of Springsteen, Van Morrison or The Waterboys.
He is also a great songwriter, as his album A Whisper In A Riot testifies.
