Strange Boy


A unique voice from Limerick, Strange Boy is a rapper, poet and spoken word artist whose album HOLY / UNHOLY is one of 2021’s finest and most individual releases in Ireland. The album features guest appearances from fellow Limerick rapper Hazey Haze, Strange Boy’s brother Seán McNally Kell and Moya Brennan, and marries traditional Irish instrumentation and raw arrangements with the kind of powerful social commentary.

Live, Strange Boy brings the album to the stage with traditional musicians backing him.
