Flo McSweeney has worked in the entertainment business for over 35 years. As a singer she has toured extensively with Moving Hearts and The Commitments, including performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland; she has worked on many projects with Bill Whelan of Riverdance fame, including the Yeats/Beckett Festival at the Abbey Theatre for five years and An Evening with W.B. Yeats at the National Concert Hall, Dublin, in September 2015; and she is a regular guest vocalist with the 17–piece Hot House Big Band. Carmel McCreagh hails from Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, but now lives in Wicklow. For 20 years she has been writing and performing with Fiachra Trench.
