Bio - Marianne Green

As a teenager, Marianne Green rediscovered her father’s old vinyl Irish traditional music albums and began a musical journey with appearances all over the world. Her debut album Dear Irish Boy is co-produced by the iconic Andy Irvine. Marianne selected the songs from old books and field recordings and discovered some remarkable material, rarely recorded by contemporary singers. Marianne is especially attracted to the musical gems of Belfast and County Down. She is joined by her band, Magnus Wiik - Guitar & Dobro, Martin O’Hare - Bodhran & bones and Sonnich Lydom - Accordion & harmonica for this lunchtime concert in the atmospheric setting of The Factory.
