On Sunday 18th September, 2022 Singer/Songwriter Brian Duffy releases his much anticipated third solo album, ‘The Walk’ in Matt Molloy’s Yard Bar.
The contemporary Irish folk musician began working on this latest release during the lockdown and says “the music I have created on this album is a testament to persistence and not giving up on your dreams. I found a new creative space during lockdown, which lead to this new CD”.
“During the pandemic I ran a series of online concerts called ‘SOFA SO GOOD’, which helped me maintain a connection with others and my music, the online encouragement I received and the gratitude in the messages that were left for me, inspired me in creating this new album. The music is a mixture of many different feelings and emotions that would have occurred for a lot of people during lockdown. The songs describe trials of daily life; from family loss and grief, to dealing with illness, as well as, songs of love and of hope which many people can relate to. Music for me is a healer and can be a source for helping other people, a place of meditation, a distraction from the normal which I feel is necessary for everyone.”
This is the second collaboration with producer Donogh Hennessy based in Dingle, who has helped Brian craft these songs to their ultimate potential. A fusion of renowned musicians from both Ireland and abroad have contributed in the creation of this body of work, from Mexico to Dingle, Wales and back!
Brian describes his music as a mixture of contemporary traditional Irish influenced with a mixture of Latin and Asturian folk music, from the Northwest of Spain, where he spent a number of years performing.
The launch takes place on Sunday 18th September at 9pm in Matt Molloy’s Yard Bar, Bridge Street, Westport, Co Mayo. Admission Free. Special Guest on the night is singer/songwriter Tony Reidy followed by Brian who will take to the stage with his full band and says he is “really looking forward to sharing his new music with everyone”.
