GRAINNE HUNT - LIVE in Mick Murphy's, Monday, November 9, 2015
Gráinne Hunt is well known to BAG Regulars for lending her beautiful vocals to Mark Geary's previous shows with us, but she is also a fine songwriter in her own right. Its a great pleasure to welcome Gráinne to BAG for her debut solo performance on Monday, November, 9th. Doors open at 8:30pm. Admission is €12; Gig starts at 9pm sharp, with support on the night from Ciaran Dwyer.
Just back from opening for Glen Hansard with Mark Geary in Europe, Gráinne Hunt released her new mini album 'Firing Pin' on October 23rd. The title track is the second single released off the album. The first single 'Lilacs ' was released in August, reaching no.4 on the iTunes chart and gaining significant airplay on national radio.
She also provides backing vocals for Nicole Maguire and Glen Hansard and is regularly compared to Natalie Merchant, Dolores O'Riordan and Alison Moyet amongst others.
With songs co-written with James Cramer of Tupelo and produced by Joe Chester, in the Living Room @ The Cauldron, this album is a long awaited release from the singer. Gráinne is joined on the album by James and Joe, along with Graham Hopkins, Lorcán O’Dwyer and Vyvienne Long. The beautiful artwork for the single and album was provided by Gary Reddin Ink.
The album 'Firing Pin' is a 9 track release featuring six studio tracks and three live performance tracks.
