About

“Helena has been performing since she was knee high to a guitar.”

Helena is an accomplished vocalist, storyteller, actress and songwriter. For several years, she has combined her love of Irish folklore and passion for the performing arts, performing as a seanchaí (storyteller) and singer for groups of all ages across Ireland. Akin to the travelling seanchaí of times past, Helena also performs regularly across the Atlantic, most recently performing for the Irish Ambassador to the U.S. in Washington D.C. Helena interweaves tales of Irish folklore and history, with traditional Irish songs and wonderful insights into an Ireland of days gone by.
