bio

Éna Brennan is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger, songwriter and graphic designer originally from Brussels. Since moving to Dublin from Brussels nearly 10 years ago she has obtained an MPhil in Composition from Trinity College Dublin and collaborated with a vast array of artists, be it as a composer, arranger or violinist, weaving in between many of the layers of the Irish music scene. She already has a long list of notable gigs to her name including performances at Other Voices, 12 Points Festival and Sounds From A Safe Harbour. Her show All Things Strings airs monthly on Dublin Digital Radio and she runs an ensemble called Dowry Strings. Recent projects include a sold-out tour with Bell X1 around Ireland and upcoming projects include following up her debut realease.

“One of the most talked about acts in the Irish live scene, Éna Brennan's Dowry has been slowly percolating and garnering devotees for a few years now. With the aid of her trusted fiddle, Brennan has been routinely fleshing out the sounds of some of the country's most engaging emerging acts."
