John McGrath is a guitarist, sound-artist, PhD and author from Ireland. His music explores the boundaries of the ancient and modern as traditional elements meet improvisation and experimental tendencies.
Recent work is concerned with nature and place, focusing on single-take recordings. These solo fingerstyle instrumentals feature drones, transformative repetitions, found sound and distilled fragments of live granular synthesis. His solo fingerstyle compositions have been featured in The Wire magazine and on numerous international radio stations. He is the author of "Samuel Beckett, Repetition and Modern Music" (Routledge, 2018).
