Siney Crotty (c 1921 – 1984) was a singer from Ross, Kilbaha in West Clare not far from where John was from. He lived and worked in London in the 1950’s as a carpenter and then moved to Dublin where him and John struck up a friendship. Siney was a highly respected singer and his style of traditional singing was highly praised and very close to the sean-nós style. Source.
