Who Are We

Niamh McGuirk

Niamh McGuirk

Blog Category: Vocalist

Posted on the December 5, 2019

Niamh first started her musical adventure at the age of 11, where she studied vocal training and music in the Royal Irish Academy of Music. Throughout her teens, she attended stage schools such as Billy Barry and Diggs Lane for dance and vocal training and starred in many shows and musicals around Dublin.


Niamh’s professional career started in 1998 when she joined Abbaesque, the most successful Abba tribute band in Ireland to date. Playing the part of Frida, they toured around Ireland, the UK and Dubai. During her time with Abbaesque Niamh performed on many TV shows including the Late Late Show. Leading on from some of those sessions, Niamh has appeared on TV backing artists such as Carly Hennessy.


In 2006 Niamh took some time out to focus on her fitness training. She is now a qualified national fitness trainer and presenter for UK and Ireland.

Even though the band has been fronted by a male vocalist since its inception in 2001, we were very excited when Niamh joined in 2015. Her outstanding vocal talent and energy really shine when she is on stage with the band, and she never misses an opportunity to engage the audience in the band’s performances.
