Kirkland Performance Center to host Downtown Abbey actress Maria Doyle Kennedy

The Kirkland Performance Center will host Maria Doyle Kennedy at 8 p.m. on May 3.

Millions know Kennedy, but may not realize it. She plays Mrs. Vera Bates on PBS’s wildly popular Downton Abbey or Queen Katherine from HBO’s The Tudors, then you are acutely familiar with Maria’s acting skills.

What most people don’t realize is that she is an accomplished singer with five albums under her belt.

“I have found my voice,” sings Maria Doyle Kennedy on her new album “Sing.”

Tickets for her KPC concert at $25.

For more information on the concert call 425-893-9900 or visit the KPC website. http://www.kpcenter.org/performances/maria-doyle-kennedy
