Barry Hughes Wedding Singer Éire

Funeral Music

Professional Singer & Musician specialising in providing music for Funeral Services. Performing on Guitar, Low Whistle & Piano

If you need music for your loved one’s funeral service please feel free to contact me directly at
+353870926046 or email me at to discuss details.

I can provide music for all types of funeral services – Church, Civil & Humanist.

The loss of a loved one can be a very difficult time for families, and music plays a vital role in honouring the passing of a loved one and with that in mind I will provide all the help and advice that is needed to choose music that will suit each funeral service.

Here is a suggested list of liturgical hymns and secular songs that I can perform. Requests can also be made for music that may not appear on this list.
If you wish to have a piece of music performed at the graveside – special arrangements can be made for this.
I will also make myself available to help and advise the family and friends of the deceased to choose music that will honour their memory in a respectful and meaningful way.
