Síle Denvir is a sean-nós singer and harpist who is deeply influenced by her upbringing in the west of Ireland Connemara Gaeltacht. A native Irish speaker, her singing is very much rooted in the ancient style of sean-nós or old-style Gaelic singing, while her harp playing and interest in the music of the old harpers is influenced by her teacher and mentor Kathleen Loughnane.

He began visiting Ireland in his teens and developed a particular interest in the fiddle playing of Paddy Cronin, Denis Murphy and in the bowing techniques taught in the manuscripts of Pádraig O’Keeffe.
