Maria Doyle Kennedy is an Irish folk singer first, and that’s how she got into acting with a role in the fantastic indie flick The Commitments (1991). She proceeded to get small roles in movies and TV including historical costume roles. But music continues to be her passion, and she’s released over a dozen albums as either a solo artist or with The Black Velvet Band. Who knows if we’ll see her in a few more frock flicks?
