"A whole festival wrapped up in one band!“ (BBC Radio Scotland)
Gráinne Brady performs music from her second album Newcomer. Based out of Glasgow (but originally from Co. Cavan, Ireland), Gráinne relishes in the creative milieu of the city’s renowned trad and folk scene. Newcomer follows the story of Norah Ryan, the literary heroine from Irish writer Patrick MacGill's Children of the Dead End. Norah was a woman of strength and beauty, who nevertheless was vulnerable to poverty, exploitation, and emotional loss. Joining Gráinne on the night will be Andrew Waite, Sarah Leonard and Su-a Lee on strings, Fergus Kerr on French horn, as well as the BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician of 2021, Michael Biggins on piano.
