In Conversation with Paul Brady
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’.
