West of Ireland electro/pop fiddle and button pusher Daithí new track ‘Mary Keane’s Introduction’ has a personal significance as it is interwoven with an interview with his granny, as he explains:
“A few years ago my Grandmother was interviewed about what life was like in Clare when she was younger. When I heard the recording I couldn’t believe how personal and heartfelt it was, I hadn’t heard anyone her age talk so honestly about love. I put parts of the interview to some chords I was writing and everything clicked into place. It’s a great introduction to the upcoming record, which is inspired by living in the west of Ireland. My Grandmother is 90 years old, and still lives in a thatched cottage in Ballyvaughan”.
Daithí will play a headline gig at the Workman’s Club, Dublin on Friday 11 December.
