Sandy Kelly is
undoubtedly one of the finest entertainers
Ireland has ever produced.  Her career stretches
right back to her childhood and her family’s “Fit-Up”
Roadshow.  Sandy Kelly first appeared on stage at the early
age of 3. 
Sandy Kelly
represented
Ireland in the Eurovision in 1982, she was a
European ‘Gold Star Award’ winner in 1985, in 1986 and 1989
she represented
Ireland at ‘Fan Fare’ in Nashville.  She had her own RTE TV series from 1990
– 1992 – the show never left the top ten Tam Ratings and was
later aired on both Border and Sky TV in the
UK.   She has appeared on British and
American TV on numerous occasions.  And she is now about to
front
Ireland’s Country Music Digital channel.  
Sandy Kelly has
recorded with Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, George Hamilton
IV, Glen Campbell, Patsy Cline, Jett Williams
(Hank
William’s daughter), Randy Van Warmer, The Jordanaires,
Chet Atkins
and more recently Hal Ketchum to
name but a few worldwide stars.  She has had two gold records
with Johnny Cash: “Woodcarver’ and ‘Ring of Fire’ and a Gold
Album and Single for her ‘Patsy Cline’ tribune recordings. 
Sandy has toured with Johnny Cash, Willie
Nelson and Slim Whitman.  The list goes on and on and it shows
the true talent that
Sandy possesses that so many of the world’s top
artists are now associated with her. 
Over the last 20
years Sandy Kelly has won just about every award there is to
win in Showbusiness.  The most recent of these was being voted
top “British and Irish Female Vocalist” at the prestigious
“Irish World Millennium Awards” in
London.  Other recipients at the awards included
former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds, Bob Geldof
and Paddy Casey.  In 2001 she was among an elite group

special reception. 
Sandy Kelly’s
latest project has brought her to
New York where she has been working with one of
the top
US entertainment companies, Michael Carson
Productions, on a new ‘Musical Stage Play’.  The play, which
has been co-written by
Sandy, is about her own life growing up in a
“show-business” family. 
Sandy has also started work on a new book about
her life and times for one of
Ireland’s leading publishers. 
Here are just two
of the many quotes Sandy Kelly has received from her piers
over the years:
“It was my
pleasure to sing with my favourite female artist, Sandy
Kelly.  In
America she has been Ireland’s greatest
ambassador.  She won the hearts of everyone who saw her.  I
am honoured to be included as one of the guest artists on
her album”. 
Johnny Cash
“Sandy Kelly is,
in my opinion, one of the top 15 female artists in the world”
