Tour of New Zealand and collaboration between Irish traditional musician Nuala Kennedy and Danish global roots band Himmerland, appearing at several major festivals as well as more intimate concert venues.

Himmerland is a group of experienced musicians,that come from different regions of Denmark, Poland and Ghana, in West Africa. They compose their own music infusing it with various different cultural traditions.

Nuala Kennedy, a versatile singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and seasoned session player, spent her formative years in the Dundalk Co. Louth, where she developed her imaginative playing style, which draws from both Irish and Scottish traditional music. Kennedy has since toured globally as the Nuala Kennedy Band, headlining numerous festivals. Kennedy is a founder member of several contemporary traditional/Irish music bands including Oirialla (music of Oriel featuring Gerry Fiddle O' Connor and accordionist Martin Quinn) and The Alt (Irish vocal Trio) featuring singers/guitarists John Doyle and Eamon O' Leary.
