Currently Gráinne Duffy is finishing tracks for her second album, as a
follow up to her stunning debut album Out of the Dark which was released
last year to warm reception which included her being asked to appear for
three days at Glastonbury 2008 Festival. There she was lucky enough to
share the stage with such wonderful artists as Joan Baez, Suzanne Vega,
Sinead O Connor, Seasick Steve and The Blockheads to name but a few.
Alongside appearing at many of Ireland's leading festivals Grainne was
also approached by the BBC to record a track, ‘Get Here’, for their T.V.
promotion campaign in George Martin's Air Studio in London which was
then aired over the summer on BBC 1 and BBC 2. This year she has taken
part in two T.V. shows for R.T.E. One of which is for the highly
acclaimed music program Other Voices along with
Eric Bibb, Christy Moore, Duke Special,
Elbow, Lisa Hannigan, Mick Flannery, Billy Bragg and many more and she
also took part in an interview with RTE's John Kelly. The second is a
documentary piece for the most watched R.T.E. series Nationwide, both of
which will be going out early this year. This year this Grainne will be
appearing alongside Paul Brady for the re opening of the newly
refurbished Ulster Hall and also at the renowned Celtic Connections
Festival in Scotland and other leading European Festivals among other
projects in the coming year.
