Polly Barrett, a familiar name on Ireland’s music scene for many years, has released two studio albums; Mr. Bookshop in 2011 and Probably Me in 2014. Polly toured Ireland and the UK extensively during this time, including playing support for Agnes Obel, Julie Felix, Roddy Woomble and Cara Luft.
Having taken a break from the industry in the past few years to spend time with her family, Polly is back. Fresh off a hugely successful trip to Kansas City for an Official Showcase at Folk Alliance International in May 2022, she has released her highly anticipated new EP, Dark Garden.
The first track to be released, ‘Thinking About You’, was included on the RTE Radio 1 Recommends Playlist and chosen to feature in a Discover Ireland campaign for West Cork. Polly has played support to Jack O'Rourke and Caoimhín O'Raghallaigh this year and she continues to write and record new music from her home on the Mizen Peninsula.
