Les Snaith is an accomplished local performer who performs at many local venues, playing guitar to accompany his vocals.
Les started playing in a band called "Borderline" with Pat and Ron Keady, and then with Ian Young in an interestingly named band called "Shytalk"! In recent years Les has been working in Northern Ireland and has been playing with traditional bands in Belfast and Derry.
Les draws his material from a wide musical genre, and lists his influences as Bob Dylan, Guy Clark, Tom Russell, John Prine and Mississipi John Hurt.
Whilst much of his reportoire is composed of pointed lyrics he also includes some splendid humourous songs which entertain audiences immensely.
