Folk legend Declan Sinnott bring his ‘Window on the World’ album tour to Monroe’s Live on Thursday 20 August.
Declan is a highly esteemed musician and producer who has played with a host of talented performers and musicians over the years including Christy Moore, Mary Black, Sinead Lohan, John Spillane, Moving Hearts and Horslips to name but a few. He released his first solo album in 2013 on Warner Music, ‘I Love the Noise it Makes’. He was 62.
Since then, it has taken him just three years to produce another solo album, titled ‘Window on the World’. The songs weave through melancholy and happiness in an effortless way that is synonymous with the artist. All songs on this album are co-written with Owen O’Brien, however Declan plays all instruments on the album.
The opening track on the album is ‘Walk With You’, to which the banjo adds a sound of Americana. His songs are as deep as his voice, such as in ‘Sleep on the Beach’ which warns us not to get too caught up with modern life. His songs take us on a lyrical journey, which resonate long after. Declan is a keen photographer, who also created the videos for his tracks. All the songs were recorded at Declan’s own home studio.
Declan is a self taught guitarist, who started playing after receiving a guitar when he was 13. He has since established himself as a veteran of Irish music over the last fifty years. Don’t miss the opportunity to see one of Ireland’s leading musicians play live at Monroe’s Live. He is accompanied by Vicky Keating on the night, who sings all harmonies on his new album. Support is from the Supernovas.
Doors are open at 8.30pm and tickets are €22/€20 online. Visit www.monroes.ie for more information.
