Thosaigh Geraldine Bradley ag foghlam amhrán traidisiúnta agus í ar an bhunscoil agus nuair a chuaigh sí chun na Gaeltachta chuaigh na ceoltóirí a casadh uirthi ansin go mór i bhfeidhm uirithi. Tá an tionchar sin le cluinstin ina cuid ceoil go fóill go háirithe ar a halbam nua a d’éisigh sí From The Rising Spring Cloch Fhuaráin. .

Geraldine Bradley

Geraldine Bradley began learning traditional songs at an early age and when she spent her summers in the Donegal Gaeltacht she was greatly influenced by the singers she met there. This influence can still be heard in her music especially on her new album From The Rising Spring Cloch Fhuaráin. Geraldine joined the BLAS team in Carrickmore to perform some songs for us.
