Contemporary folk harpist, singer and composer BRÍDÍN, carries on the tradition of Irish music into the fourth generation of her family.
Over the years she has achieved many accolades for her musical ability including RTE Folk Awards Nominee and All Ireland Titles. Her love of music led her to pursue a musical career, having studied music at University College Cork achieving a degree in Music and Irish and Masters in Music and Performance.

BRÍDÍN has developed her own style influenced by her natural surroundings and rooted in her background in traditional Irish music. BRÍDÍN uses her loop and effect pedals to create her musical pieces. Her layered melodies on harp and voice blend beautifully with contrapuntal fiddle, keyboard, electric guitar and bass, woven together with pulsating drums.

BRÍDÍN grew up in a funeral home and is a funeral director and embalmer at her father’s funeral home in Ballina and Sligo town, McGowan’s Funeral Home and has always found from a young age she has been fascinated by life and death. ‘I’m fascinated by the constant flow of nature and the beginning and ending of life.’ This has helped her form a great appreciation of life and inspires her music. ‘Music is my love, emotional outlet and acts as my healer’.

Speaking about her debut, self-titled album just released;

‘This album is my best work yet, I’m so proud of every last note and the musicians who have joined me. I can feel a real honest journey throughout of grief and healing, and I hope it helps people as much as it’s helped me.’

BRÍDÍN’s recent national television performances include ‘The Late Late Show’, ‘The Tommy Tiernan Show’, ‘Ireland AM’ and ‘The Main Stage’ and many national radio interviews and live studio sessions. Performed on the main stage at Electric Picnic and more with Denise Chaila 2022.

She will be joined by Kevin Donnellan on fiddle, Anna Houston on Cello, Stephen O'Dowd on guitar and Luke Moloney on drums, as well as dancer Izzie Garvey.
