Old Flat Top presents


+ guests

Grainne Duffy from Castleblaney is a new voice with new songs in Blues – Rock vein. Think Bonnie Raitt (Grainne also plays a mean lead electric guitar in the band) and you’ll have some idea of the power and emotion this young lady can evoke. Her debut CD, “Out Of The Dark” is a stunner!

Rock/Blues guitarist and vocalist, Grainne Duffy has just began promoting her debut album ‘Out of the Dark’. Aside from receiving a degree in music in NUI, Maynooth, she also has been gigging constantly as both lead guitarist and vocalist doing session work which has seen her tour Italy, Sicily and France.

All of which has lead to the development of herself as an artist writing her own material and the beginning of her solo career. This has been marked by the recording of her debut album which features ten of her original songs and two completely individual takes of the classics, The Thrill is Gone and I’d Rather Go Blind.

Joining Grainne on lead guitar and vocals is Ronnie O Flynn on bass, Richard Nelson on lap and pedal steel and dobro, previously of the Van Morrison Band, Johnny McCullough on piano and the very talented Paul Sherry on rhythm guitar.

Listening to her debut, it is hard not to acknowledge the many influences in her singing, guitar playing and especially her song writing such as Etta James, Bonnie Raitt, Fleetwood Mac, Peter Green, The Stones and even Bob Dylan.

Currently continuing her heavy promotion of her stunning debut through radio and magazine interviews and most importantly for Grainne the heart of the whole experience; live gigs, she already has penned new material for her follow up album.

This is an artist true to her music and not afraid of the hard work and dedication it all involves. Just take a listen and see for yourself what everyone is talking about!
