Biography Niamh Bury

Niamh Bury

Niamh Bury
is a musician and songwriter from Dublin’s north coast. She has shared the stage with acts like Ye Vagabonds, Martin Hayes and Dermot Kennedy and has recently signed to Ireland’s iconic folk label, Claddagh Records. Niamh’s repertoire of “richly spun folk” (Nialler9) includes traditional ballads and self-penned songs exploring myth, folklore and human empathy. 2023 saw her release several singles to wide acclaim, and her much-anticipated debut album is due for release in early 2024.

Over the past six months, Niamh has collaborated and shared the stage with acts like Ye Vagabonds, Martin Hayes, Myles O'Reilly, Niamh Regan and Cinder Well and earlier this year, she was selected by Dermot Kennedy to play with him in a gig at one of Dublin’s favourite pubs, The Long Hall, as part of Guinness’s Live and Rising campaign.

She has performed at St. Patrick’s Festival, Body & Soul, Quiet Lights, and Dún Laoghaire Folk Festival.

Niamh is also one of the chief organisers of the traditional singing session The Night Before Larry Got Stretched, which takes place in The Cobblestone pub on the last Sunday of every month and whose founders include members of Lankum.

Speaking about Beehive, she says, "It’s about the overlapping of myth, folk wisdom, and science. It was inspired by a passage from a book I was reading about a tribe in the Amazon who say that the human brain is like a beehive - at once chaotic and intricately ordered."
