Darragh Burke is currently a third year student on the pop course at RNCM. Since joining the college Darragh has become lead guitarist of the alternative rock band Cosmo Calling, releasing one EP and three singles to date. They are currently working towards their first headline tour in October. Darragh is also one half of folk duo The Blackberry Fold, which allows him to flex slightly different songwriting muscles.
Last summer Darragh took part in the Garage Classical project that headlined the Friday night at LIMF, playing guitar, keyboards, and arranging one of the songs for the ensemble.
“My musical specialities lie in making the simple ideas hit home. I like uncomplicated music that is based on evoking an emotional reaction, and I hope I can bring these concepts to the project and create a poignant and powerful tribute to those who were involved in the fall of Manchester Hill.”
