SPECIAL INTERVIEW: Hermitage Green

theaussieword.com catches up with Darragh Graham from Irish folk/pop/rock group Hermitage Green.

Give us an introduction. How did it all begin? What had you first interested in music? We have a set of brothers in the band, Barry and Dan. Barry and I would jam together and Dan and his mate Darragh Griffin would also. One night Barry brought asked me and Dan asked the other Darragh to meet up. I brought my housemate Felix (who has since been replaced by Dermot) and we just started messing about in a back room of a bar. After a few sessions the people in the bar asked us to come out of the back room and play for them. We did and on that night we were asked to play in another bar, then another and another and that was the start. We all have our own beginnings but mine was a late one. I started playing music myself while in college. I was probably influenced by my parents are they are big into their folk and used have big sessions in our home, so music was always around.
