One of Ireland’s most enduringly popular artists, Paul Brady is set to return for a one-night only concert at the National Concert Hall, Sunday 3rd November 2024, 8pm.

Forging a reputation as one of Ireland’s finest singer-songwriters, Brady makes a very welcome return to perform work from his extensive catalogue in what promises to be an intimate and captivating experience, inviting audiences in to his world of music and song. 

Brady who has more than sixteen albums to his name, is distinguished by his unique storytelling abilities through music, and is also credited for adopting many musical styles incorporating folk, rock blues, traditional Irish and classic pop into his song-writing. Songs such as The Island, Crazy Dreams, Nothing But The Same Old Story, Nobody Knows, Follow On, The Long Goodbye, The Homes of Donegal and Paradise Is Here have, over the years, become well-known to generations of Irish at home and abroad, earning him legions of fans the world over.

Over the course of his lengthy career in music, Brady has enjoyed stints in The Johnstons and Planxty alongside a distinguished solo career. He has also worked and collaborated with such notable musicians and performers as Van Morrison, Mark Knopfler, Bonnie Raitt, Ronan Keating, Curtis Stigers, Sinead O’Connor and Mary Black.

By now a well-loved ‘elder statesman’ of the Irish musical community, Brady continually garners respect and admiration from many of today’s younger writers and performers, namely Glen Hansard, Imelda May, Wallis Bird, Declan O’Rourke and Hozier. 

In 2015 Paul Brady was presented with a National Concert Hall Lifetime Achievement Award, at a special concert in his honour, presented by President Michael D. Higgins.

Faoi an Ceoláras Náisiúnta 

Is institiúid chultúrtha náisiúnta na hÉireann don cheol é an Ceoláras Náisiúnta, a fhreastalaíonn go bródúil ar phobal na hÉireann ó osclaíodh é i 1981 trí thaibhithe ceoil beo agus cláir shuntasacha oideachais agus chultúrtha. Lonnaithe i gcroílár Bhaile Átha Cliath, agus béal dorais le Gairdíní Uíbh Eachach, tá an Ceoláras Náisiúnta bródúil as ár gCeolfhoireann Shiansach Náisiúnta, Cór Siansach Náisiúnta, Cór Linn agus Cór na nÓg chomh maith le háit chónaithe a chur ar fáil do réimse eagraíochtaí ceoil eile lena n-áirítear Cór Aireagail Éireann, Ceolfhoireann Bharócach na hÉireann, Music Network, Crash Ensemble agus Music Generation. Tá sé i gceist faoi láthair athfhorbairt mór á dhéanamh ar na háiseanna go léir mar chuid den Phlean Forbartha Náisiúnta agus de Thionscadal Éireann 2040.
