Blue Mandolin, the new album from Maria Butterly, will be launched at a gala show in the Knightsbridge Hotel, Trim, on Monday, 2 December. It’s a dream come true for the hard-working Meath lady who is so passionate about her music and whose journey has taken her to Nashville and California.

These are exciting times for Maria. The Laytown native is among the most focused singers and musicians on the circuit, pioneering her own style and winning much acclaim in the process.
