John O' Grady
I’ve been into music since a Kid. Dad thought me Banjo and Guitar and a love for traditional music. I Play Piano and write all kinds of music including classic/melody only. More comfortable collaborating. Find melody/lyrics on my own hard work. Currently collaborating with Tony F Kenna also featured on this website. We were in school together and recently met up again to write music and hopefully have some fun in the process.
I have also collaborated with my Dad Dermot, who passed away this year. My Dad was a poet with an amazing nostalgic love for his hometown Wicklow , a coastal town about 30 miles South of Dublin. Many of his poems/lyrics capture in intricate detail his childhood memories of growing up in Wicklow town. You can almost picture the scene, smell the sea air and feel you are there.
I Work as a Family Doctor and live just outside Dublin. Married with 3 strapping boys.
