Oonagh Cassidy

Irish Music Forever is happy to welcome Irish singer Oonagh Cassidy to our Video Showcase section.

That’s the place where we highlight some of the best artists around on the circuit today.

Talented singer-songwriter Oonagh Cassidy certainly falls into that category.

Born into a musical family

Oonagh was born into a musical family in Northern Ireland where everyone seemed to sing or play an instrument.

Family gatherings inevitably ended in a musical session, which was to provide an excellent training ground for the young Oonagh.

She’s been singing and entertaining audiences for as long as she can remember, and was already an accomplished performer by the time she was 15.

That’s when she recorded her first song.

Oonagh delivers Time After Time

Oonagh writes most of her own material but can also turn her considerable talents to songs by other artists.

She’s recorded a highly original cover version of Cindi Lauper’s Time After Time, which provides a great introduction to her style and versatility.

Oonagh has been performing throughout Ireland and the UK over the last few years and has an EP out called Then and Again.

She’s now working on her first album which is due to be released in the Autumn.
