Bringing music to life in the heart of Portaferry
Runabay are six musicians from the Glens of Antrim who through their passion for harmony and melody have been writing and recording since 2013.
Runabay are at the forefront of fresh, new music in Northern Ireland, a sound which has undeniably been shaped by the beautiful coastline which surrounds the Glens of Antrim and is felt through the swooping melodies and poignant lyrics. The band produce a mature sound that leaves the listener hanging on the intricate guitar riffs, mellow three part harmonies and haunting cello.
Notable highlights are national airplay on BBC 6Music, RTE 2FM, Today, Amazing Radio and massive local support from Radio Ulster.
Runabay are John McManus (vocals/guitar), Gary Graham (guitar/vocals), Gerard McHugh (vocals/percussion/keyboard), Michael McKinney (bass/double bass), Declan McCartan (cello) and Rory McAuley (drums/percussion).
