Noel O’ Grady is a uniquely gifted singer whose repertoire straddles the works of great Irish writers such as James Joyce, William Butler Yeats, Seán O’ Casey, Patrick Kavanagh, and John B. Keane.

A four-time Oireachtas Na Gaeilge winner for traditional singing in Gaelic, his interpretation of love songs has one often listening to the familiar yet hearing it for the first time.

Noel believes that poetry and music combined can penetrate the heart, and sometimes reach that sacred place within – the soul.

He has graced venues such as Vicar St and the National Concert Hall, Sarajevo and Russia.

His debut album, The Enchanted Way was warmly and critically acclaimed..

In constant demand as a performer, last September Noel represented James Joyce and Ireland in Russia, in a celebratory week of international events marking the centennial of the death of Leo Tolstoy. Tina Sani, one of Pakistan’s foremost singers, on hearing him sing The Stolen Child by William Butler Yeats, asked him to duet with her.

He is currently recording a collection of songs from the life and works of James Joyce.
