Níamh Dunne shares new single ‘Tides’ feat. Karan Casey

April 28, 2023

Niamh Dunne is on tour across Ireland in June with her latest album “Tides”. Niamh will be joined by Seán Óg Graham and will play Kerry, Tipperary, Down, Dublin, Wicklow, Galway and Mayo.

This is Niamh’s first solo project in ten years and her first ever album made up entirely of self-penned songs. The album is in 2 halves; one based on story songs inspired by traditional Irish songs and the other half based on singer-songwriter style, introspective songs that look at lived experience, feminism, family, history and connection. Both halves are a reflection on her life as a musician, from her traditional roots with the Traveller family The Dunnes right up to writing with contemporary acts like Foy Vance and Ed Sheeran in recent years. This album is a chance to lend her own voice, with all its contradictions and nuances, to the musical landscape.

Niamh’s latest single is the title track from her latest record “Tides”. She is joined by her long-time collaborator and friend Karan Casey in this song she wrote for her mother; a lullaby about reading stories together as a child. The song touches on the special moments between mother and daughter that are at once transient, fleeting and deep rooted many years later.

“Shut your eyes tight, girl, I’ll live in your dreams,

Never far from you though far I may seem,

Don’t be afraid now just lie here with me”
