Wallis Bird has told RTÉ Radio 1's Today with Seán O'Rourke that she and fellow singer-songwriters Eleanor McEvoy and Maura O'Connell will be back for more A Woman's Heart shows in 2021, following the huge reaction to their concert on RTÉ One recently.
Bird joined the programme from her home in Germany on Tuesday, with the host asking her if the trio had plans for further concerts.
"Oh God yeah!" replied the singer. "Trying to keep us apart will be a job in itself. We've definitely set aside dates for next year. For this year I guess everything is just put on hold. We don't want to be apart for very long."

"It's very special the three of us all together with the [RTÉ Concert] Orchestra; it was just something else," she continued. "We're keeping in close contact and we had a good conversation during the showing on TV of the show in the Wexford Opera House."
When Bird was asked for the song that's helping her through the Covid-19 emergency, she replied: "It's Annie Lennox's Little Bird. Not because I'm biased because of the name! This song is just a really beautiful, hopeful, uplifting, subtle yet extremely powerful tune. Every time I play it and don't say anything people lose their minds. It puts people in a good mood... There's so much to love about the track."

"I really miss home," she added. "I'm calling up and seeing what they're having for dinner and trying to eat the same thing that they're eating. But I have these lovely phone calls where my mam brings me around the garden and my dad shows me all the birds' nests and stuff. It's lovely, but I wish I was there too."
A Woman's Heart with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra is on RTÉ Radio 1 on Monday, May 4 from 2:00pm.
