For over thirty-five years, Sandy Kelly has been one of the top performers in Ireland. Crowned by Hot Press in 1993 as Ireland’s “Queen of Country Music,” during her long career she has had countless hit records, sang with some of country music’s biggest names, hosted her own TV series, starred on the London stage and captured the hearts of a legion of fans across Ireland, the UK and the United States.
Starting her career on the cabaret scene in her hometown of Sligo, she was soon honing her skills as an entertainer on the showband circuit and ended up strutting her stuff on the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and London’s West End.
Since her hit recording of Crazy in 1989, Sandy has been closely linked to country legends, Patsy Cline, the late Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Glen Campbell and her long time collaboration with country legend George Hamilton IV.
She continues to tour regularly
