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 RTÉ Folk Awards Nominee and All Ireland Titles.

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, cello and woven together with pulsating drums.

BRÍDÍN grew up in a funeral home in Sligo and has always 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.

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. She performed on the main stage at Electric Picnic with Denise Chaila in 2022.
