Grainne Duffy at The Old Courthouse
ONE of Ireland’s brightest up and coming young music stars, Grainne Duffy, is set to play The Old Courthouse, Antrim, on Saturday, December 3 at 7.30pm.
Since the release of her debut album, Out of the Dark, which led to her appearing for three days at Glastonbury Festival in 2008 alongside such artists as Suzanne Vega and Sinead O Connor, Grainne’s career has gone from strength to strength.
Approached by the BBC to record a track, Get Here, for a TV promotion campaign, she was also asked to take part in RTE’s highly acclaimed Other Voices music programme along with Christy Moore, Duke Special, Elbow, Lisa Hannigan, Billy Bragg and many more.
She appeared alongside Paul Brady at the re-opening of the Ulster Hall and also at the renowned Celtic Connections Festival in Scotland. She has just returned from an extensive tour of Norway.
Her wonderful mix of blues rock and soul in her original material and her treatment of a few carefully selected standards charged with true emotion and feeling can win over any audience and leave them begging for more.
Another huge local talent, guitarist, David Browne-Murray, will be opening the show for Grainne on what should be an amazing night of great music at the Old Courthouse in Antrim.
Tickets are still available for the show on Saturday, December 3 at 7.30pm, costing £10/£8 concession, from the Box Office on 028 9446 3113 or online at www.antrim.gov.uk/oldcourthouse
