Declan Sinnott in York

With a career spanning over 40 years, Declan Sinnott has played guitar and produced music for Irish folk luminaries such as Christy Moore, Mary Black, Sinead Lohan and John Spillane to name but a few. He was a founding member of Horslips and Moving Hearts - two of the most influential trad/electric bands in Ireland, and spent 13 years guiding Mary Black's career, producing the majority of her music.

Since the year 2000 Declan has been guitarist and producer to Christy Moore, who was recently named as Ireland's greatest living musician in RTE's People of the Year Awards.

Following the release of his critically acclaimed debut album I love the Noise It Makes in 2012, Sinnott sets out on a tour of the highlands and York. His performances in Coatbridge and York will be part of the St Patrick's Day Festival and celebrations in those towns, a choice that couldn’t be more fitting for a man whose contributions to Irish and acoustic music have inspired a whole generation of musicians.

Declan Sinnott performs in York on 17th March at The Duchess with support from Paula Ryan.  Tickets and further details from the venue link below.
