Vincent O’Brien

Originally from Dublin I am a singer songwriter currently based in Manchester. I play electric and acoustic guitars, lap steel, dobro, harmonica, bass, mandolin, mandola and banjo.

 As a result of UK government medical advice I am on a 12 week (minimum) home quarantine due to the Covid 19 Pandemic. While I am out of action on the live front I will be working on some new songs, videos and remixing some of my older songs. Hope to see you all on the other side!
