Derry, County Derry
BAIRIE; a branch off from the solo project of multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Emily McCormick, is a collaborative project, on the folky side of things, in the early stages of releasing and performing. Originally a solo act, which morphed into a duo with the addition of Robert Arbuckle; it is now a band based around the songs of McCormick with cowriters and collaborators to boot! Following the debut single release 'Mr Green' in April 2018, which received airplay on both ATL and electric mainline, Bairie opened the City of Derry Jazz Festival in May live on Electric Mainline and performed live on the John Toal show.
With a string of upcoming gigs including Bennigans Bar and The Clipper Festival, and a good few behind them now (39 Gordon Street, Ghostlight Sessions, Leo's Tavern Gweedore) BAIRIE have been making waves in the Irish music scene. Currently working with Tom Newman (Tubular bells) on a new single, with another on the way, it is expected to be a summer of music from Derry's BAIRIE.
