Artist of the Day: Brendan Nolan




In honor of St. Patty's Day, we're naming as our Artist of the Day St. Pete Beach’s Brendan Nolan. The singer-songwriter grew up just north of Dublin; now he’s one of the area’s top traditional Irish folk musicians, traveling to bars and festivals around the country performing originals and traditionals; he says his music has become “more upbeat” since moving to Florida. He’s released more than a half-dozen albums, including 2007’s Song Brook, with vocals that call to mind American Recordings-era Johnny Cash. Tonight he'll celebrate the wearin 'o the green at O'Toole's Irish Pub in Brandon.
