Grainne Duffy Band
March UK Dates
Grainne Duffy and her band (Ireland) will be in the UK for a short run of dates in March including slots at the Scarborough, the Banbury and the Bowness Blues Festivals.
Quote: "Grainne Duffy is a unique talent, raw and powerful, edgy and elegant. Growing up in Co. Monaghan, Ireland she gained exposure at an early age to such defining influential artists as The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac and The Pretenders by raiding her elder sisters’ record collection and very soon was developing her own musical tastes. This began when she heard the subtle playing of Peter Green on such songs as ‘NeedYour Love So Bad’ and ‘Albatross’, which was to pave the way for Grainne to start listening to other guitarists such as B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and of course Rory Gallagher. Such a fascination led to Grainne picking up the guitar and beginning what was to be just the start of her musical journey. "
