Niamh Dunne is a fiddle player and singer, who is known for her unique traditional fiddle playing, her folk-infused fiddle compositions and smoky warm vocal style. She has performed on the world stage as founding member of the renowned band Beoga.
Her album “Tides” is Niamh’s first solo project in ten years and her first ever album made up entirely of self penned songs. The album is in 2 halves; one based on story songs inspired by traditional Irish songs and the other half based on singer-songwriter style, introspective songs that look at lived experience, feminism, family, history and connection. Both halves are a reflection on her life as a musician, from her traditional roots with the Traveller family The Dunne’s right up to writing with contemporary acts like Foy Vance and Ed Sheeran in recent years.
This album is a chance to lend her own voice, with all its contradictions and nuances, to the musical landscape.
