David Skinner, is a genuinely rare talent on the guitar.

Just turned 20 his musicianship and performance are those of a real veteran. In his show David plays a unique blend of Tommy Emmanuel style guitar pieces punctuated with heart-felt blues numbers, and inspired originals.

David Skinner, grew up being home schooled allowing unfettered creativity through his childhood. Although a competent drummer by 8, it was through the guitar that David found his voice. David wrote and recorded an entire guitar based instrumental album at 15, bringing him to the attention of guitar legend Joe Satriani who invited David to Vicker St. and later backstage to meet the band on his last visit to Ireland. David and has since developed into a keen lyricist, applying the same dedication to writing lyrics as he has done to his guitar playing.
Anyone who has seen David remarks on how one man with one guitar can fill the air with so much music!
