  • I have had the pleasure of including Brenda's music on my night-time programme. Brenda is extremely talented, professional and exercises great versatility in both her singing and her ability to play a variety of musical instruments. The response I received after playing her version of Bette Midler's "The Rose" was big and very complimentary. If you need a versatile and professional singer/musician you need look no further than here. I have only the utmost praise for Brenda's talent and will be giving her more airtime in the future.

  • We came home from London to Mayo to marry in our local church in Claremorris. The hotel gave Brenda’s name to us. From the start Brenda was professional and extremely nice and helpful to work with.
    She guided us through our choice of music and songs and helped us choose carefully. Brenda covered every detail thoroughly. We had listened to her sing on her website but on the day when she performed live in the church we were totally blown away with her heavenly and majestic voice. In addition to being a fantastic singer she plays several instruments so we felt we had several musicians in the church when in fact Brenda plays many instruments from Harp to flute to guitar – we could not have been happier with the church music and if anybody is wondering who they are going to get for their church wedding music we would without doubt not hesitate in recommending Brenda – We will be forever indebted to Brenda for making our wedding mass so very special – THANK YOU BRENDA

  • My husband Michael and I were fortunate enough to secure Brenda as the singer at our wedding ceremony. She had come so highly recommended to us but I don't believe we fully understood how helpful and facilitating Brenda would be until we had the opportunity to work with her.
    Brenda met with us to discuss and assist us in choosing our wedding music. We explained the type of church ceremony we had in mind and both of us would agree that Brenda's understanding and appreciation of music coupled with her wealth of experience made us feel we had prepared the most fitting and personable music selection for our special day.
    What is so extra special about Brenda is the level of intensity and depth of feeling that is delivered in her singing. Her rendition of 'Ave Maria' during our ceremony was absolutly beautiful. Brenda filled the church with a roaring applause....everybody spoke about her singing afterwards. As the bride and groom, Michael and I had goosebumps and in fact I shed a tear. It was one of those memorable and perfect moments.
    If you are looking for that extra special something for your wedding ceremony then we would strongly recommend you consider Brenda. She has an amazing talent and is a truly wonderful person to work with. Brenda, we will always be thankful to you. Lots of Love

  • Andy and I cannot praise Brenda’s part in our wedding day enough!
    We live in New York but decided to get married in the church where my maternal grandmother grew up in Ballyvary, Mayo. We wanted a traditional but relaxed and inclusive wedding ceremony and the music was a very important part of that.We were delighted to meet Brenda, who lives locally and discover that she plays many instruments well! From the start, she was very friendly and fantastic in all aspects of helping us – she was flexible in having preparation calls, given the US/Ireland time difference and then meeting us in person when we arrived the week before the wedding. Brenda gave us really great advice in helping us select a mixture of hymns and instrumental pieces, getting us the balance of both Irish and English tunes.
    During the wedding itself, she sang and played beautifully and afterwards many of our guests commented on how special the music and her performance had been.
    We would thoroughly recommend Brenda’s work and would love to have her perform at our next Mayo event!

  • Brenda you recently sang at our wedding and I just want to say how completely happy we were with the singing you provided for the church. You have such an amazing voice and we so loved your version of Over the Rainbow which we asked you to sing. I saw you recently singing at a friends fathers funeral and I heard people speak about your amazing voice on the day - You are a true professional and an absolute pleasure to do business with and such great value for money. The traditional music was so lovely - thank you !You take such an interest in the couple and what they want and we felt so much at ease when we spoke to you - we would have no hesitation in recommending you to anybody and thank you for making our wedding day mass so special.
