Maria Butterly is an exceptionally talented singer/songwriter with many years of experience performing live gigs in Ireland and the United States. Maria has extensive Wedding experience as a singer at church and civil ceremonies.
Multi-instrumentalist – self taught on guitar, mandolin, piano & whistle – Maria’s original style draws on influences from both the Irish Contemporary Folk genre and the American Country-Bluegrass genre, as can be heard on her album ‘Blue Mandolin’.
With her new debut album ‘Blue Mandolin’ Maria Butterly, stands poised to be the new jewel in the crown in Ireland’s rich crop of musical talent.
Lauded on TV3’s Ireland AM as ‘One of Ireland’s most talented Singer/Songwriters’, Maria soon delivered on such promise with the much-prized ‘Songwriter of the Year’ accolade at the 2013 -Leinster Entertainment Awards.
Her first single ‘Angel’ launched her into the spotlight as a previous contestant on Glor Tire on TG4. While her 2015 single “You are My Heaven” received the Farmers Journal award for ‘Best New Original Single 2015’ – all proceeds from which go to the Irish Motor Neuron Disease Association.
The voice of an Angel, Maria Butterly is a wonderful addition to any Wedding ceremony or live event.
