Declan is a young songwriter hailing from Glastonbury in the heart of Somerset. His songwriting, informed by myth, story and social commentary combines with a strong awareness of tradition accompanied by characteristic open tuned guitar and resonant vocals.

For a young artist (aged 19) he has a strong track record, performing at gigs and festivals around the Southwest and as far afield as Whitby. He has his roots on the Southwest Festival scene playing in cafes and on traveller stages. Since then he has played at various other festivals in the South West, including the Big Green Gathering, Keynsham and Larmer Tree and has played at venues varying from Salisbury Arts Centre, Colston hall and Musicport in Whitby. In 2011, aged just 14, he supported Lau at Dartington Hall. In recent years he has worked with Thomas Brooman co-founder of Womad.

He released his first record, “Welcome to the Earth” in 2012 produced in Bristol by Patrick Duff. He completed his second “The Wheel of Life” in collaboration with his sister, Caelia Lunniss, in 2014, recorded in a local church and produced by Nathan Lewis Williams. Last year he wowed judges at the Bath Folk New Shoots Competition with his original material and returns this year to perform a headline gig.
