Inspired by the 50s blues and rockabilly that her brother was listening to, Ireland's Imelda May began singing and performing at the age of 16. Twenty years later, she's still in the industry climbing up the charts in the UK with her record "Mayhem."

With her encyclopedic knowledge of rock and roll, Imelda visited The Current for a performance and chat with Bill DeVille before her show at the Fine Line.

Songs Performed: "Mayhem," "Eternity," and "Inside Out."
