About

BarryGruff is a music blog, based in Newbridge, Ireland and the gist is pretty simple; to share some musical musings with a wider audience than my mates down the pub or wherever.

That’s what I’ve been doing since March 2010. In conjunction with the blog there’s been also a regular series of events; gigs with Broken Home & I, and ‘Crackling Vinyl’ – all vinyl nights.

In March 2015 the blog celebrated five years and to mark the occasion I released ‘GruffWuff‘; a 19-track compilation of new, previously unreleased & exclusive tracks curated and compiled by myself & Stephen Connelly – download here.

There’s was a podcast with Mr. Justin Beats called ‘Millions Like Us’ – find out more here.

I sporadically write for other publications too when time allows and have contributed to Nialler9, GoldenPlecState.ie, HeadStuff, Lookleft Magazine Vancouver Observer, 604now and Rabble. I also DJ and curate playlists etc. from time-to-time. As well as music I’m pretty obsessive about politics, history and football.

Thanks for stopping by.

Barry
