ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Originally from Wheeling, WV, Terry Griffith now resides and entertains in Pittsburgh, Pa. where he is known for his interpretation of Irish ballads and Acoustic classics. His rich baritone voice is suited to ballads from the humorous to the emotional and his repertoire is sure to take audiences through all the highs and lows that music can span in an evening.
Terry's CD, For My Grandfathers, is the very best of that repertoire and guaranteed to be one of the favorites in any collection of Irish music lovers. The title song explains why a "Yank" of Irish heritage would become involved in the music and the politics of Ireland. "If my ancestors would have never left Ireland, I would be there singing the same songs."
The album is not only a sample of his vocal and guitar stylings but also contains some excellent musicians that compliment and complete the experience. It's not a party album that you play in the background but one that you truly listen to for the words, the emotion and the message.
Terry's web page www.pittsburghirish.org/griffith contains a performance schedule and other helpful information so that you can experience his music .
"In listening to the music of Terry Griffith, you will hear the 'soul' and 'spirit' of an Irishman. His strong, rich voice and eloquent guitar playing will help you visualize the scene of the song. Terry's interpretation and delivery of the music is excellent. He writes songs with a lot of 'heart' and his lyrics help you feel his feelings. Terry Griffith is a wonderful ballad singer and his music is a 'MUST' for your Music Library.” – Diane V. Byrnes, Echoes of Erin radio show, WEDO, 810AM, Pittsburgh
Terry is a popular stage act at several Renaissance and Medieval Festivals and a review of “For My Grandfathers” can be found in the March, 2009 issue of “Renaissance” magazine.

Great. It's time for another.
It sounds like you wrote your own bio. I'm impressed.
I bought 3 CDs - sent to family for Christmas in Conn.
Mass., NY. I didn't see that you are performing
anywhere tonight (Jan. 25). We may see you next Fri. at
the Pourhouse.

Slan Go Foil.
