New York City, here she comes….

Hayley visited New York last week to take part in their St Patrick’s Day celebrations. She performed with the ‘Celtic Woman’ group at the legendary Radio City Music Hall and then had a concert of her own to launch her new album at one of the city’s oldest Irish venues,the Ulysses' Folkhouse.

TV crews and media from around the world were there and Hayley wowed them all with her voice and the personal songs which feature on this new album. It was also the first time Hayley’s performed some of her original songs live which was a huge thrill for her.

TV3 New Zealand featured music from the launch, and had a great interview with Hayley.
