‘Widely regarded as one of the finest guitarists to come out of Ireland, but primarily a brilliant songwriter of longstanding cult status…easy to listen to, hard to define, with a melodic touch of Paul Simon and lyrical insight of John Prine, but with a sound and songwriting skill that is undeniably all his own.’ Belfast Telegraph.
Get along and show your appreciation for this guy…he’s been quality for years…LOCAL RADIO SHOULD DO A RESPECTFUL FEATURE ON THE GUY – HE’S EARNED IT!
