Irish musician Declan Sinnott plays at Airdrie Town Hall on Saturday as he tours in support of his debut solo album I Love the Noise it Makes.

With a career spanning over 40 years, Declan has played guitar and produced music for Irish folk luminaries such as Christy Moore, Mary Black, Sinead Lohan and John Spillane.

He was a founding member of Horslips and Moving Hearts, two of the most influential traditional bands in Ireland, and spent 13 years guiding Mary Black’s career, producing the majority of her music.

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

Having played everywhere, from stadiums to pubs, Declan says of playing live: “The magic moments for me can happen in front of 10,000 people or 1 person.

“There are ‘unforgettable’ gigs that I’ve completely forgotten, and badly attended gigs that I will never forget.”

The show starts at 7.30pm and tickets costing £10 are available by calling 01698 403120 or visit NLC entertainment
