Roy Buckley interview on 1st July 2011
Cork singer songwriter Roy Buckley joined me today for a chat about music and how things have been going for him so far this year. Roy has been on the show before and at the drop of a hat he would pick up his guitar and sing a song and this time it was no different. Today we spoke about his upcoming shows this weekend where he would have some very special guests on stage
Roy Buckley was born in Cork City, Ireland, on November 6th, 1986. From a very early age he had a great interest in Irish/folk Music. Growing up in a musical family, Roy was constantly surrounded by folk songs and music. Roy’s music has been dubbed as passionate and real and he creates an amazing atmosphere with the audience with his own unique sound of modern day folk. Roy is in constant demand getting great acclaim for his live performances.
Having collaberated with some of the best in the business including The Dubliners, The Fureys, Bagatelle, Aslan, George Murphy, Niamh Parsons, Mike Hanrahan, John Spillane, Jimmy Crowley, Finbar Furey and Johnny McEvoy to name a few, Roy has definitely helped to popularize folk music again and introduce it to a new generation.
