Guitar Shopping S1E5: Declan McKenna
We head down to Wunjo Guitar on Denmark St with the UK guitarist – and walk out of there with a strange but compelling instrument…
Since winning the Glastonbury Festival Emerging Talent Competition at 16, Declan McKenna has become one of the most interesting and popular young songwriters in the UK, and he’s also a bona fide guitar nut who, as this latest episode of Guitar Shopping demonstrates, can’t resist a weird or leftfield new instrument when it crosses his path.
Join us as we return to London’s Wunjo Guitars to look at Falcons, Teles, weird 60s catalogue guitars, and a very unconventional acoustic guitar that might just be walking out of the shop with him…
Declan’s new album, What Happened to the Beach?, is out on 9 February 2024 – head to declanmckenna.net for more info.
