Cian Finn

With a family musical legacy that stretches to the folk powerhouse that is De Danann, Cian Finn brings his ancestral roots to his fresh reggae sound that combines electronica with hip hop, dancehall with soul.

The son of the late Alec Finn, Cian’s work is never far from the traditional path carved by the founding member of the influential De Dannan. And yet, his multi-cultural influences have steered his song writing in a new and exciting direction.

As part of dub and dancehall collective Intinn, Cian shared the stage with the likes of The Wailers and UB40. Now, he is blazing a trail as a solo artist and is set to launch his new album ‘When We Were Young’ at Monroe’s Live on Friday, December 2.

Having toured in The Philippines, China, Colombia, Japan, New Zealand, Thailand, India and Kenya, the international flair to Cian’s work is undeniable.

It is meditative yet powerful, combining the hip hop genre with a distinct R&B and electronica vibe. While the inspiration of world music on his compositions is clear, Cian never strays far from his folk origins.

It is through the ebb and flow of this melodic journey that Cian has found his niche. Currently settled in his hometown on the west of Ireland, his performance at Monroe’s Live is set to unite the cultural ties from Jamaica to Galway Bay.

Join Cian Finn for his album launch party at Monroe’s Live on Friday, December 2. With support from Kelsey and Iarla Fox and Ernie DC. Doors open at 9pm and tickets cost €12 from monroes.ie
