Sinéad O’Connor completes the line up for WOMAD

Also added is Samantha Crain who replaces Soema Montenegro

WOMAD have announced that the compulsive and uncompromising performer, Sinéad O’Connor will close the Open Air Stage on Sunday night.
 
It is billed to be a very special performance for Sinéad, for along with performing some of her most acclaimed hits, she will debut some tracks from her brand new album, 'I'm Not Bossy, I'm The Boss' out 11 August 2014.
 
Sinéad’s debut album ‘The Lion and the Cobra’, which was released in 1987, immediately marked her out as a sensational young talent, while the single ‘Mandinka’ took her to glory across the world meaning that by the end of the decade she was a Grammy nominated rock chanteuse with the world at her feet. The following year after the release of her awe inspiring re-interpretation of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ she quickly became one of the biggest female music stars and she remains the most iconic Irish artist of the past thirty years.
