'Belong' marks half of her life in the States, will perform a concert at
the Living Room November 7, which will be taped and broadcasted by the

McKeown has long been a part of the songwriting community in NYC and she
flies her flag as a New Yorker on great new songs like "On The Bridge
to Williamsburg" and "Lullaby of Manhattan." The focus on 'Belong'
remains solely on her breathtaking vocals.

In a distinguished career, McKeown has performed with Pete Seeger,
Natalie Merchant, Linda Thompson, Billy Bragg, Arlo Guthrie and The
Klezmatics. McKeown has recorded mariachi music, klezmer music, African
music, Celtic music, and contemporary songwriting. She won a GRAMMY for
'Wonder Wheel,' in collaboration with the Klezmatics on lyrics by Woody
Guthrie. In 2010, she made 'Singing in the Dark,' a fascinating
exploration of creativity and madness.
She has performed throughout Europe and North America including

concert review, Rolling Stone said, "McKeown grabbed both song and
audience by the throat, dragged them through heaven and hell and back
again, and left the stage to the loudest applause heard all evening."
