The Details

Celtic duo, ‘The Sweet Sorrows’, are making a return trip to Australia – and once again, St Barnabas Anglican Church is hosting them in concert. Come and enjoy the harmonies, stories, lyric, and faith of two of Ireland’s favourites!

Sammy Horner has been around music most of his life and is best known as the main songwriter, bassist and front man of the Celtic rock combo ‘The Electrics’. Sammy is known as the first to bring together Celtic and contemporary worship music.

He has written a series of popular and successful Celtic Praise albums, five albums worth of music for kids, a Celtic techno album and is the author of two children’s books.

As well as touring with The Electrics, Sammy has had a successful solo career as a producer, writer and performer, and toured inEurope, Asia, Australia, Canada and the USA.

He has played and written with many of the finest in the music scene including Buddy and Julie Miller, Phil Madeira, Mark Robertson, Rich Mullins and John Hartley.

Kylie Horner was singing harmonies around the piano from her youth. Along with a background in dance, this paved the way for the stage & musicals and ultimately as a vocalist in bands in Saudi Arabia and later in worship teams from Australia to the USA.

Together, they form ‘The Sweet Sorrows’. Nomads with a passion to travel the globe, delivering a blend of Celtic/Americana/Roots, both traditional and original inspired by the journey of life in all its fullness.
