Grainne Hunt & Brendan Walsh Smithwick's Sessions TradFest Temple Bar 2020

Grainne and Brendan

Date: Jan 23, Jan 24

Songs from Ireland  is a new Irish folk project and record from contemporary folk singer Gráinne Hunt and award-winning guitarist Brendan Walsh.  They have reimagined a collection of traditional Irish ballads and folk songs in both English and Irish. Brendan’s meticulous arrangements give new life to these beautiful old songs.

Gráinne and Brendan met in 2000 when they both attended NUI Maynooth, completing the BA (Music) together there.  In early 2018 they joined forces to perform at Shannonside Winter Music Festival and from there, ‘Songs from Ireland’ was born. We look forward to hearing the duo perform their new takes on such beloved songs as ‘Raglan Road’, ‘Trasna na dTonnta’, ‘Song for Ireland’ and ‘Mo Ghile Mear’.
