"Bernadette O'Grady is a singer-songwriter from North Ireland, who now lives in West Wales. She began writing and performing songs, whilst living in New York, influenced at the time by both Irish and American artists. Her material ranges from contemporary storytelling to more reflective, soulful songs performed with honest emotion. Bernadette has gained an excellent reputation on the UK acoustic scene for her exceptionally fine songwriting, intricate guitar-playing, and distinctively beautiful vocals.
Bernadette gave an highly entertaining interview and beautiful live performance on the Evening Show (BBC Radio Wales), with her songs receiving additional airplay as a result. One of her songs was also featured in the award-winning independent Irish film 'Just Another Miracle' and broadcast as part of UTV's 50th Anniversary Short Film Festival.
Bernadette has performed her own ninety-minute show at Aberystwyth Arts Centre. Other live performances have included Aberystwyth Acoustic Platform, Brecon Fringe Festival, Cwmaman Music Festival, Kontra Roots Club (Northamptonshire), Oxjam Brecon, RT Productions (Aberystwyth), Soundbites (Powys), Tenby Folk Festival, The Halo (London), and World Unlimited (Birmingham)."
