Marty Duda's artist of the week: Paul Brady

From Nine To Noon, 11:10 am on 22 July 2015

Irish musician Paul Brady began his career in the late 1960s and early 1970s singing and playing traditional Irish songs with various bands. He eventually went solo in the mid-70s and began writing his own songs by the end of that decade. Since then he has become a highly respected, yet highly underrated songwriter whose tunes have been covered by Bonnie Raitt, Tina Turner and Joe Cocker and he has co-written with the likes of Carole King and John Prine. Paul Brady has just released The Vicar St. Sessions Vol.1, 13 live tracks taken from his historic one month stand at the famous venue in Dublin and features guest appearance by Van Morrison, Sinead O'Connor, Bonnie Raitt and many others. As the title would suggest… more volumes are on the way.
