Stephen Smyth to play St Kentigerns' for St Patrick's Night

Manchester Irish Festival 2017

Renowned multi-instrumentalist Stephen Smyth will be bringing his award winning show to St Kentigern's Irish Social Club for St Patrick's Night. In what is predicted to be the hottest ticket in Town, Stephen who is regarded as Ireland's most versatile singers and entertainers will be taking the stage at the 'place to be'.

Kevin Fitzpatrick from St Kents said, "We work hard all year at St Kentigerns' to ensure we bring you the best live entertainment. This year, we are delighted to welcome Stephen to the club. You'll understand why he has established himself as one of Ireland's most entertaining bands and a household name in Ireland and across the UK, as recognised by his Sunday World 'Best Entertainer in the UK' award. Come down to the place to be. With the mighty J.I.B also entertaining - at a tenner it really is a snip!"

Stephen is an expert on lead guitar, steel guitar, saxophone, fiddle, accordian and tin whistle. He has had hits with 'Wolverton Mountain Bride' and 'The Boy From Donegal', and backed by his own band he puts on a fine show of Country, Irish and Popular music that will keep the hands clapping and the feet tapping.

Over the last 20 years Stephen has covered every corner of Ireland and the UK. He has played in all the major venues and can be heard on many radio stations. Stephen started his career playing in a band called 'Shotgun', which was Philomena Begley's backing band. He then joined 'The Indians' for a few years, before moving on to Dominic Kirwan and later Declan Nerney.
