Friday Night Live: Mandy and Graham Bingham

Mandy's emotional and compelling debut album, Bury Me Deep, showcases her unique brand of Folk Noir and Americana perfectly. At first listen you could easily be deceived into thinking that Mandy is a downtrodden country girl from south of the Dixie line. In fact, she is the eldest daughter of the acclaimed Northern Irish musician, the late David McWilliams. Mandy pays a moving tribute to her late father by closing her album with a beautiful and heartfelt rendition of his iconic song The Days of Pearly Spencer, which features the Arco String Quartet.

Mandy writes her own songs very much from the heart. With her wealth of life experience and acoustic guitar she creates beautifully formed lyrics and melodies. Her voice is pure and crystal clear and has earned her recent comparisons to Janis Ian and Dory Previn. Her live performances, alongside her lap steel guitar playing husband Graham, are equally both delightful and captivating.

Mandy and Graham will be joined on the night by the wonderful Ballymena based band The Hideaways.

'Mandy Bingham’s voice is outstandingly beautiful. She has inherited her father’s song writing skills and talent'
 - Folk and Tumble 

A real talent, such mature song writing….' – Ralph McLean, BBC Radio Ulster
