  • Biography

    Originally from Dublin I live in Manchester where I perform regularly at local bars and cafes. I have also played around the UK as well as at a variety of venues and festivals, most recently at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and at venues in Germany, Austria and Romania I play a mix of original songs, americana, blues classics.

    I play acoustic and electric guitar, slide guitar, lap steel, weissenborn (Hawaiian lap steel) and Bass guitar. I also play Harmonica, banjo, Mandola and Mandolin.

    I have released two albums of original music. 'The Man From The Moon and One Day... are available on Apple Music Spotify and other digital platforms. A third album is due for release in June 2018.

    I have seen Vincent play on several occasions. He is an impressive performer and delivers his music with quality and style. He is a must see multi-instrumentalist musician.

    Vincent, was fantastic, everyone at the Bulls Head really enjoyed his music and a fabulous time was had by all. Vincent is a very skilled musician and has a range of instruments he plays on, the Hawaiian guitar was especially good. We will definitely love him to play here again in the future.
