Gerry Tully has been a part of the Irish music scene for thirty years, appearing in folk and traditional groups and as a solo performer across Europe and America. Since his 2008 release of 'Leaves Float Down', a self-penned debut album he has gone from strength to strength as a solo performer. Although labelling himself a ‘folk singer’ he is equally at home playing English or American folk and blues songs along with his own compositions. Gerry’s original compositions reflect his colourful life, dealing with love, loss and the strangeness of the everyday world.
Jackie Hayden - Hotpress magazine; “‘True Love’ is a performance that comes as close to the greatness of Christy Moore as I’ve heard since Damien Dempsey.”
He is also an incomparable ballad singer and has performed with many of the well established performers. In 2010, Gerry performed at the ‘Folken Pagaille’ festival in France, returning in 2011 to headline the festival. In 2012 Gerry formed an Americana duo, ‘Blue Cedar Project’, appearing in venues around Ireland including Vicar Street and Cork Opera House. In the same year he performed at the “Friends of Banjo Barney” concert with John Sheahan, Donal Lunny and Andy Irvine commemorating the life of The Dubliners banjo player Barney McKenna. Gerry performed at the opening of the first ever Irish Festival dedicated to the music of Leonard Cohen in Dublin's Liberty Hall in 2014. To mark that event Gerry released ‘Maverick’, a five-track EP of cover songs requested by fans.
In 2017 Gerry begins a series of intimate solo performances around Ireland and beyond. Using guitars in various tunings and 5-string banjo to accompany his unshakable vocal style.
Jackie Hayden – Hotpress Magazine; “Gerry oozes confidence as a performer echoing back to early Dylan and Tom Paxton”.
