This Weekend I’ll Mostly Be Listening to… Paul Brady November 10, 2018

Posted by irishelectionliterature in This Weekend I'll Mostly Be Listening to....

Passed him in the street recently and it reminded me of how there was a period where I went to a load of his gigs and that I still had some of his stuff on vinyl and CD. Having a background in Traditional music with The Johnstons and Planxty his self penned material is somewhat different yet his distinctive voice carries it. Aside from numerous Irish acts like Maura O’Connell, Dolores Keane and Joe Dolan his songs have been covered by an array of other artists including Joe Cocker, Cliff Richard, Saint Etienne, Tina Turner, Cher, Phil Collins, Santana, Bonnie Riatt, Art Garfunkel and Paul Young. I’d imagine the songwriting royalties he gets must still be pretty good.

Always admired him and he has written some beautiful songs. I know someone who has lived close to him for decades now and that person said way back how good Brady was in the community – doing fundraising etc at the drop of a hat for schools etc where needed.
