“From an early age, Laura came to master the piano classically and traditionally, collecting numerous titles through RIAM and Fleadh Ceoil competitions. From this she took up an interest in string instruments, beginning with Tenor Banjo, mandolin and in recent years, guitar.

After a year of self tuition on guitar Laura collected an All Ireland title in Traditional accompaniment and has since become known as one of the few female Traditional Guitarists in the country. After her All Ireland success, Laura began her professional music career at the age of 18 touring with numerous dance show companies such as GFD Promotions, Ragús, Take Two promotions and CMI entertainment internationally.

She also joined numerous bands on the road such as Perfect Friction and The Young Irelanders on European and North American Tours performing alongside some of Ireland’s most renowned musicians and artists.

With her song repertoire thriving, Laura then branched into her solo career at sea as a featured solo artist on many cruise liners across the globe.

Now back in Ireland Laura is developing a reputation both as a singer, songwriter and a multi-instrumentalist performing nationally and Internationally with various musical projects”
