Failte (Welcome)
Welcome to the official website of songwriter and Irish folk ballad
singer Cynthia Bennett. After beginning her musical career by being
"dragged blinking onto a stage", she has delighted audiences in
Ireland, Canada, and the United States with her pure vocals,
whimsical humor, and spirit of adventure and fun. In her music,
Cynthia relates Celtic mythology, Irish history and stories of
everyday life, frequently with a humorous twist.
In 2008 Cynthia suffered multiple injuries which left her unable to
return to her active performance schedule. She considers this a
welcome change in direction: she still sings and writes, but she has
discovered the satisfaction of helping other artists. Cynthia and her
husband, a producer and sound engineer of note,  now focus on
mentoring new folk musicians, recording, and producing.  Cynthia's
"adoption of musical kids" has earned her the nickname
"Everybody's Eema"..
