Belfast Telegraph: Who is Northern Ireland’s greatest guitarist?

Northern Ireland may be a small corner of the world but some of music’s most talented guitarists hail from right here.

 Inspired by the latest Bushmills #AnswerTheCall event ‘Whiskey and Strings’, take a look at the best known guitarists from Northern Ireland and ask who do you think is the greatest?

4. Nathan Connolly (Snow Patrol)

With global hits like “Chasing Cars” and ‘Just Say Yes’ under their belt, it’s easy to forget that rock band Snow Patrol had humble beginnings right here in Northern Ireland.

Lead guitarist and backing vocalist, Nathan Connolly hails from Belfast, and is credited with having heavily influenced Snow Patrol’s sound.

In 2013, Connolly also formed his own side project, Little Matador along with musicians who have played for The Frames, Bell X1, Turn and Concerto for Constantine.

Watch out for Little Matador who will play a Belfast gig as part of Belsonic on August 17 this year.
