Wayne Brereton

Wayne Brereton is a Folk/Ballad singer songwriter from Co. Offaly in Ireland.

Having played in gigging bands from the age of 14, Wayne was the guitar player for a once very popular Irish pop/rock band HOGAN. Having parted ways Wayne returned to his first love of music, Ballad / Folk & Traditional Music where he is a member of the band Turas as well as fronting his own increasingly popular band The Cardinal Sins. Wayne would recognise Luke Kelly, The Wolfe Tones, Shane McGowan , Sean Keane, Liam Clancy, Christy Moore and of course his multi-talented father as as his biggest influences for the crafting of his own style. Wayne is a fluent Gaelic speaker and also worked as a tour guide in Kilmainham Jail, which puts him very much in tune with our musical culture of remembrance of our Irish songs & ballads.
