The Grainne Duffy Band from Ireland will be returning by popular demand to Bootleggers in Kendal this coming Friday the 17th February.
‘In a world of chick rockers Duffy is the real deal’ – Henry Yates, Classic Rock Magazine.
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 ‘Need Your 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.
