Irish-born Chris Hennessy was a founding member of the Sons of Erin, whose album of folks songs made them popular in both Newfoundland and Ireland. This provided the opportunity to tour Canada, which led Chris to produce his own album, Ballad of a Sad Cafe. Chris then immigrated to Newfoundland where he established himself as a singer and songwriter, met his wife, and settled into his career of playing, singing, songwriting and producing music.
Chris Hennessy plays regularly at O’Reilly’s – check our entertainment schedule for upcoming shows!
“I remember the first time Chris sang Her Father Didn’t Like Me Anyway at O’Reilly’s – I got goosebumps,” says Brenda. “His guitar playing is exquisite and his voice is like velvet.” He frequently appears as a guest artist with other bands and groups on their albums, as well as on Newfoundland compilation albums.
Brenda’s favourite song? “Chris’s rendition of Her Father Didn’t Like Me Anyways brings me back to my youth when I’d be lucky enough to go to a house party with my parents. This song was played regularly on those occasions and I always loved it and the feeling it gave me. I still do!”
