About Maggie's Wake

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. I began playing the tin whistle at 3 years old and the first time I performed "professionally" at the ripe old age of 4, the microphone was too tall, even at its lowest height. They ended up standing me on a chair so I could reach it! - Tara What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Nick Lowe, Basher - The Best of Nick Lowe The Chieftains, The Chieftains: Film Cuts The Derailers, Here Come the Derailers These albums showcase my favourite music. The lyrics & hook laden melodies of Nick Lowe, the pure honky tonk heaven of the Derailers & the most beautiful, emotional & rich sounds of the Chieftains. They are all still in constant rotation. - Tara Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Bridget O'Brien” This song was inspired by a gravestone I encountered during the lockdowns. I walked by it daily, always wondering how this woman, whose name was written beneath her husband's, only had her birth year etched in the stone. Where had she gone? - Tara
