VIDEO: Declan Sinnott & John McMeekin play live in Rothesay

Irish singer-songwriter Declan Sinnott received a warm and enthusiastic welcome on his first visit to Bute when he played at Craigmore Bowling Club on Saturday, October 19.

Sinnott, joined on stage by backing vocalist Vicky Keating, performed a mixture of self-penned material from his 2012 debut release, I Love The Noise It Makes, and his as-yet-unrecorded second album, along with songs first recorded by Christy Moore, with whom he has worked for almost 30 years, Noel Brazil, Tom Paxton, Billy Fury and The Beatles, to name but a few.

Support from Paisley’s John McMeekin completed a memorable night’s entertainment and left Sinnott’s first Bute audience hoping for a quick return visit.
