Grainne Duffy is a contemporary blues based artist hailing from Castleblayney, Co. Monaghan.
Described by The Sunday Times as ‘a blues singer of real integrity’, Grainne Duffy is a pioneer of her own style while also paying sincere homage to her roots, soul, blues and rock traditions. She is a seasoned artist and has been spending the last number of years touring in Europe, Scandinavia, Canada and beyond. Some highlights thus far have included 3 performances at Glastonbury Festival, Phuket Festival in Thailand, Notodden Festival, Norway and Dark Season Festival in Svalbard, in the Arctic Circle. This year she has been invited to play some leading international festivals including Tremblant Festival in Canada, Blues du Passions, France and Tanjazz in Morocco. Soon to release her eagerly awaited third album to follow the success of her debut roots album and her second album which weaved together her contemporary influences with her blues and soul roots.
Her Live album recorded on tour in Germany, released earlier last year earned her a 9/10 review in Classic Rock sister magazine, The Blues Magazine, quoting ‘This sensational live album confirms Grainne Duffy’s formidable reputation’, ‘few possess her killer combination of vocal strength, range and intensity, guitar virtuosity and ability to engage audiences’ ‘this is one of the best live CDs of 2015’.
With a voice that is as passionate as it is raw and honest, accompanied by simple, melodic and well phrased guitar lines, this is what you have in Grainne Duffy. Having worked with Nico Bolas (Neil Young, Los Lobos & Keith Richards), 2016 saw her back in the US recording with producer Justin Stanley (Beck, Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow).
