Artist Biography

Edel Meade is an award-winning vocalist and composer from Clonmel, Co. Tipperary. For her, music-making is less about playing within the confines of a particular genre and more about stretching her abilities as a creative artist with something to say. 

Stand-out tracks from the latest album include Song for Bridget Cleary (burnt alive by her husband in 1895, not far from where Meade grew up), Long Way To Go, a scintillating spoken word piece challenging misogyny and the cervical smear scandal in Ireland; and Ode To Old Noll, a blistering ode to Oliver Cromwell who sent thousands of Irish people to the West Indies in the 17th Century, among them, members of the Meade family, some of whom continue to reside on the Caribbean island of Montserrat today. 

"One of the most powerful vocal performances of late comes from Co. Tipperary’s Edel Meade” Cian Ó Cíobháin, RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta"
