Summer Sounds @ glór: Marty Barry

Marty Barry is the man with the killer guitar sound who accompanied Emily Flack in another of our videos. We persuaded him to give us a song as well. He's from Co. Down; no surprise that the song is too. Marty studied in Irish World Academy at UL, lives in Limerick and is a member of the new band #TheConifers. Watch out for them!
