From tender ballads to uptempo acoustic rock, an emotionally charged night in store from Waterford's own Joni Mitchell.

It's always a pleasure to welcome Marion Bradfield, a favourite with Folk Club regulars. Waterford born songwriter Marian, now based in Donegal, has been compared to Joni Mitchell with her brand of emotionally charged, original real-life songs and warm audience rapport not to mention her striking looks and blonde hair!

Bradfield's debut album "Marian" was released to widespread critical acclaim in 1993. TV and Radio appearances followed on the strength of its success, including a spot on the Pat Kenny Show and culminated with Marian playing support to Altan at Belfast Queen's Festival.

Her second album "Tonight is Just for Us" was also nominated for awards.

Her latest CD, "The Emperor's Field" features  top session musicians, and with a growing reputation internationally, Marian's songs can be found on the "Celtic Women" compilation CDs representing Ireland's finest female songwriters.

Accompanied by a new band, Marian will be performing songs from her impressive repertoire, from Marian's own tender love songs such as "Deep Blue Sleep", wry ballads like "Bedroom Eyes" or catchy uptempo acoustic rock songs like "Adrenaline Ride" as well as lively cover versions of popular songs like Stephen Stills' "Love The One You're With".
