Clancy Brothers Songwriters Competition
“I’m delighted to have come runner up in the Clancy Brothers songwriters competition
I met great musicians and enjoyed fantastic music” – Thanks to all involved.
“Declan Carruthers unleashes his Fallen Walls album in March – and a fine acoustic folk pop 10-tracker it is too! Christy Moore and Damien Dempsey are handy markers, but the Sky Full Of Crows man is plowing his own rootsy furrow”
