Why are they called the “Ladies of Longford”? The Doyle family name, passed down to Stephanie and Heather from their father Francis Doyle, originated from County Longford, Ireland. So the name seemed very fitting.
The group not only promotes itself as a whole, but also individually. Hilda still performs as a single act on occasion. Elizabeth also performs with Lone Raven, while Molly shares the stage with Sirens, McGuffey Lane, and Jonalee White Band. Heather has been a featured soloist with several local bands and Stephanie also appears with regional favorite The Rice Brothers. All these Ladies have a rich musical history both “on stage” and as recording artists.
"..these women are tremendously talented polished performers.."
- Sandra Puskarcik Director of Community Relations, Dublin Ohio
