We were entertained by a fine selection of Songs from Ireland, beautifully performed by Gráinne Hunt & Brendan Walsh at their album launch in a packed Backroom of the Cobblestone. A collection of traditional Irish ballads and folk songs, in both English and Irish, carefully arranged by Brendan to give a new feel 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.
The album was recorded in Soundville Studios, Luzern, Switzerland, the 13 tracks include Raglan Road, Trasna na dTonnta, Song for Ireland and Mo Ghile Mear.
