Terry Monaghan is a singer /songwriter /psychologist living in Gortahork in the heart of the Donegal Gaeltacht and has been composing and recording music for the last 35 years. He is inspired by the trials and tribulations of everyday life.
His old band mate, New York based guitarist, the acclaimed Sten Horsfelt had this to say about his new album Mercy. “Diggin’ the new album from my old buddy/bandleader Terry Monaghan. Always a treat. Pure Irish soul, the way only Terry can do it.”
He has been described as a cross btw Jeff Buckley and David Byrne, but he really most significantly has his very own thing.
His music echoes and carries the spirit of his band Monkey Mind, a key creative catalyst featuring a who’s who of the early 90’s Boston (and eventually global) scene including Mike Rivard (Club D’Elf), Tim Luntzel (Rosanne Cash, Norah Jones), Takuya Nakamura (Brazilian Girls, Quincy Jones, The Streets).
Terry will be accompanied for this concert by Eddie Lynch on piano, Eddie McFarlane on guitar, Aidan Dunphy on drums and Michael McGinty on double bass.
