Get to Know: Mandy Bingham
We first discovered Mandy when she supported Bap Kennedy in the Belfast Barge in December 2013, and we were impressed then. You can usually find her performing alongside her husband Graham, and in the last few years she has developed, gained confidence, and rightfully earned many fans sparking the release of her album ‘Bury Me Deep’.
She has taken part in two live BBC radio concerts with Ralph McLean, supported Diana Jones and featured in the Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival.
