Bredgeen and Brónach Harkin
Inishowen, Co. Donegal

Bredgeen and Brónach Harkin from the Isle of Doagh are granddaughter and great-granddaughter of the renowned Isle singer, the late Denis McDaid. Denis sang with a rich local ‘Isle style’ and possessed a wide and varied repertoire of songs. This legacy passed, at first hand to his granddaughter Bredgeen and in turn to Brónach, who has also inherited Denis’s musical talent. In the 2023 ‘One Singer One Song’ workshop both women sang, discussed and explored songs learned from Denis in the company of song researcher John Moulden.
