Gráinne Hunt

County Dublin

Grainne Hunt is a contemporary folk singer and songwriter, raised in Monaghan and based in Kildare. With consistently on-point, captivating vocals and well-honed, insightful songs, Grainne has shared stages with Glen Hansard and Mark Geary and has been compared to vocal icons Tracy Chapman and Nathalie Merchant.

Having just returned from Nashville, with a new record, 'This Secret', in her pocket, Grainne is working towards it's release in mid 2019. Recorded with Thomm Jutz (Nanci Griffith, Maura O’Connell) and featuring the skills of Mark Fain (Ry Cooder) on bass and Lynn Williams (John Hiatt) on drums, it is already gaining attention in the US.

Early 2019 will also see the release of an Irish folk album, Songs from Ireland, recorded with award winning guitarist Brendan Walsh. Recorded earlier this year in Soundville Studios Luzern, including songs Buachaill on Eirne and Raglan Road, they will tour Ireland 11-15 April.
