The Alley Theatre is proud to present world-renowned Irish guitarist, producer, songwriter and Folk legend Declan Sinnott, accompanied by singer/songwriter Vickie Keating on Thursday 8th March.
Declan was a founding member of Horslips and Moving Hearts. He guided the career of Mary Black for over thirteen years and has worked as a guitarist and producer for Christy Moore for over thirty years, regularly appearing with him on tour.
Despite making music for nearly fifty years, his first solo album “I Love the Noise it Makes” was only recorded aged 62.
“Window on the World” was Declan’s second album and was released May 2015.
All songs on the album were written by Declan or co-written with his good friend, Owen O’Brien.
Declan says of Owen: “He doesn’t work as a musician, he has too much sense!”
Declan is a keen photographer and makes his own videos for tracks. All the songs were recorded at Declan’s own home studio, plus he played all the instruments on the album.
All harmonies on “Window on the World” were sung by Vickie Keating.
