Originally from Ireland, a small seaside village, Rob Mcmanus had an uncle who played guitar and taught him a lot of songs. He also had friends in school who were guitar players so he just fell into it.
“It seemed the thing to do, to get a guitar. Growing up in a small hippy artistic part of Ireland there was a lot of music etc, all the pubs had it and it was part of every family occasion, singing along or playing guitar. Then you would start to wonder when you get invitations to parties if it’s just the guitar they want or…..?”
