“Dunne’s experience as a jazz musician and classical pianist are in evidence. Many of the songs are heavily piano-laden, sporting a string quartet who give full value for money. Dunne can really sing and puts her obvious vocal skills at the service of the song.” writes Jackie Hayden, HOTPRESS

Barbara Dunne has been described as a singer in the style of Joni Mitchell and Tori Amos and American Indie artists Jonatha Brooke and Bridget Brigette, recent visitors to Ireland. Her first album, “Finish Starting” with Stringology was launched in 2004.

Barbara has won the Dun Laoghaire and Maynooth Song Contests. She has performed in London and Paris, at the NCH, Goffs, Whelans, Seven Oaks, United Arts Club and Old Mill, Naas. She performed with Billy Brown and Daire Winston, The Dubliners and Luka Bloom.

Stringology is a string quartet with a fresh approach. As well as classical, they play their arrangements of music by Bowie, Police, Coldplay and Bjork. Stringology has appeared with bands such as Somadrome and Automata and in 2004 appeared at the Tullamore festival “MOR”.
