Vocal Chords: Iarla Ó Lionáird in Conversation with Paul Brady

Fri 09 Dec 2016 by Athena Media


Iarla Ó Lionáird meets fellow singer Paul Brady to explore his life's journey in song, singing and songwriting.

  Brady charts over 50 years in performance from his roots in Strabane and Donegal, to the early days with bands like ‘The Johnstons’ and ‘Planxty’ to later writing hit songs like ‘Steel Claw’ and 'Beautiful World’. He shares the joy of singing and the story behind crafting songs like 'Nothing But The Same Old Story' and ‘Hard Station’ as well as his approach to shaping definitive versions of traditional songs like ‘Arthur McBride’ and ‘The Lakes of Pontchartrain’.  

Paul Brady performs the song 'Beautiful World' and chats to Iarla Ó Lionáird about how the song came to be.

  This short excerpt is taken from the full length documentary radio programme which is due to air on RTÉ Lyric fm this Christmas - Paul Brady talks candidly with Iarla of his life's journey in music, songwriting and performance.
