Christmas by the Hearth with Sean Keane

Sean Keane

Sean Keane

Join the distinctive voice of Ireland, Seán Keane and his band along with Scoil Éanna Choir for a special Christmas by the Hearth concert on Saturday December 3 and 8pm.

Seán Keane from Galway is described as the greatest musical find of the 90s. Traditional Irish, folk and even country and blues songs all lend themselves to his unique style and unforgettable voice. Growing up in a family of singers and musicians, Seán learned the sean nós style of singing from his mother and his aunts.

“There is a simple lucid clarity to Seán Keane’s singing voice which – like a laser – cuts through the cacophonous clatter and bang of a noisy world. He is a storyteller, whose voice is the sound of everyman; as ancient history [simultaneously] as vital as a digital radio signal, winging its way across the heaven in search of new civilisations.

Sometimes he can sound as lonely as an emigrant standing on the prow of a ship taking him away from his native homeland and more times he can sound like a cyber survivor, full of strength and valour that provides comfort to those who battle unequally with the hostile emotional landscape of the modern world. Seán Keane is a touchstone of great singing tradition. He is the past, the present and the future.” Shay Healy, songwriter, broadcaster and journalist.
