Music and music-related blog


Niamh de Barra works primarily with cello, voice, electronics and sampling software, layering different textures in a live setting, to build a song from scratch, drawing on musical traditions old and new.

She’s played in a range of venues in Ireland, Sweden, and the Netherlands, from sitting-rooms and avant-garde jazz clubs, to a tent in a field on the edge of a cliff and a disused copper-mine, and her music has celebrated Bloomsday in Bray, and been broadcast on TG4’s ‘Ceol ar an Imeall’ and Dan Hegarty’s Studio 8 Sessions on 2FM.

Based in Dublin, her releases include two EPs, ‘Cusp’ (2010) and ‘Below The Sea’ (2012), and a full-length album, ‘Echo’ (2012).
