Noel O'Grady - biography
 


Noel is a native of Kerry and now lives in Dublin, Ireland. He grew up in a family where song, poetry and painting were as much appreciated as forms of communication as everyday conversation. Music has been a source of inspiration and personal fulfilment for him for as long as he can remember. It is his touchstone with life's mystical side.

He is a four-time winner of the Oireachtas, the famed Irish-language cultural festival.

In the National Concert Hall, Dublin, he has produced memorable celebratory tributes to legendary Irish writers, John B. Keane, Brendan Kennelly, and Patrick Kavanagh on the centenary of his birth, 21 October, 2004..

His soulful interpretation of Irish and international love songs are widely acknowledged.  As one respected commentator observed: "His beautifully sensitive and evocative singing lingers magically for long after in the memory."

Noel has performed in concert in such venues as Vicar St. and The National Concert Hall in Dublin, Ireland, as well as El Salvador and Sarajevo,. 

It is clear that his willingness to expose through music a glimpse of his experience along The Enchanted Way of life resonates with listeners everywhere.
