Tadhg Williams

Folk // Waterford City, Waterford

Tadhg Williams has already been dubbed "one of Ireland's most thrilling emerging songwriters". His debut single 'My Father's Clouds' released in February 2020 received significant support from RTÉ Radio One and Hot Press while two headline shows in Dublin and Waterford complimenting its release sold out.

'The Story of Me and Them (In Three Parts)', a collaborative spoken word project with acclaimed folk artist Matt McGinn was released in October 2020 receiving a considerable reaction from Irish media, including a teary eyed Tony Clayton-Lea.

Often writing about his hometown of Waterford, Tadhg's music and poetry is known for its lyricism and heart-on-sleeve melodies endearing him to an already significant fanbase. He credits his time with Waterford writing collective Modwords for his development as a lyricist. His ability to write empathically has earned him praise from the likes of Stephen James Smith and David Keenan. His songs and poems are both deeply personal and deeply familiar.

Supporting acts in the past such as Glen Hansard, David Keenan, Rozi Plain and FIELDS, Tadhg's live performances personify his music. Whether performing solo or, on occasion with his band The Council House, his shows have been described as eloquent and endearing.

“Tadhg Williams is the personification of kindness, he is giving in nature and this is reflected in his music and poetry. I’ve had the pleasure to see him develop as an empathic artist which is a wonderful sight. The future is his if he wants it. Lend him your ears!” - Stephen James Smith

“Tadhg Williams, a man with many artistic pots on the boil. He is a man on the path, walk on brother.” - David Keenan.
