Grinne Brady

Fiddle

 

 

Gráinne Brady is a fiddle player, composer and events organiser, originally from Co. Cavan,  Ireland, and currently based in Glasgow. Taught from a young age by her father, her fiddling style developed from playing with her family and in local folk sessions. In her late teens she began to branch out, playing regularly at traditional music festivals throughout Ireland, from which she rapidly began building a vast repertoire of tunes. Her playing style incorporates mainly music from Counties Cavan, Leitrim and Clare and continues to develop, more recently from Scottish influences, since basing herself in Scotland.

Gráinne works with a number of different groups in Scotland; Top Floor Taivers (Scots and contemporary song – www.topfloortaivers.com), The Routes Quartet (string quartet ensemble playing folk music – www.routesstringquartet.com) and LAS (Scottish and Irish music, stepdance and Gaelic song). She released a duo album in 2015 with piano and flute player Tina Jordan Rees, and has been twice nominated in the Scots Trad Awards.
