I am a traditional style folk ballad singer who specialises in the after party or day two party of your wedding, but could also provide ceremony music and pre-dinner entertainment or even a small band for your micro wedding. If you are looking for a good traditional Irish singsong session to entertain your guests then look no further.

I sing, play Guitar, Banjo and harmonica, whistle and percussion. I mainly play as a solo act but can be accompanied by a fiddle or accordion player on request. As a 2 or 3 piece band we could provide the music for your reception and get your guests singing and dancing all night long in true Irish wedding fashion. The options are all yours so just let us know what you need and well take it from there.

I love the after party of a wedding the most! Playing trad and singing ballads into the wee hours (or until the bar closes!) can really close your special day in the most wonderful way. Everyone has a party piece or song they love to sing (regardless of talent) and I can accommodate most peoples wishes, as long as I don't have to sing Wagon Wheel...…..that's where I draw the line! I play Banjo, Guitar and Harmonica and cover all the old favourites of the Irish folk scene from The Dubliners and Luke Kelly to Christy Moore, Wolfe Tones and The Furies. Those old songs, many of them are with us since our childhoods are a store of happy memories and a great part of who we are as a people. I love to sing them and love to hear an audience singing them too, it turns a good night into a night to remember.

Check me out on YouTube HERE and on my website HERE

I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully being a part of your most special day. Thanks for your interest.

Brendan was excellent on our wedding day. He also provided a second musician which added to the overall performance. Brendan was a pleasure to deal with from the first moment we made contact. He was relaxed and genuine and went perfectly with our rustic wedding at the Village Barn! Thanks again Brendan and Brian!!
