Artist Spotlight: Sinead Egan

Sinéad Egan studied Classical Guitar from the age of 8. Her musical development was inspired by styles ranging from Soul, Funk and R&B to Country and Irish music and singer-songwriters such as Mary Chapin Carpenter, Sade, Joni Mitchell and Tracy Chapman.

Retaining a family tradition of Folk and Country she also incorporates hints of Jazz, Soul and Blues in her music and songwriting. Her instrumental ability on bodhran, piano, banjo, mandolin and accordion, as well as other instruments, allows her freedom to incorporate a plethora of sounds in her music.

Sinéad has accompanied and supported various artists such as Declan Sinnott, Kate
Nash, Eleanor McEvoy, Frances Black, Dolores Keane, Mary Coughlan, Julie Fowlis, The Furey Brothers, Damien Dempsey, The Dubliners and The Chieftains. Most recently she’s composed a song with Boy George and performed and recorded with both him and George Clinton on an album also featuring Sinéad O’Connor.

Sinead will perform at the Village on Sunday 23 July at 13.00, 15.00 and 17.00 opposite Anya Hindmarch.
