Sean Keane and his band in the Coleman Music Centre

Seán Keane and his band will perform in Coleman Music Centre, Gurteen, Co. Sligo on Saturday, October 1 at 9pm.

Growing up in a family of singers and musicians, Seán learned the sean-nós style of singing from his mother and his aunts.

Singing was his life, even in early childhood. By the time Seán reached his teens, he had collected 13 All-Ireland medals in Fleadh Ceoil competitions. He was by then an accomplished whistle and flute player as well and had taken up the uilleann pipes and bodhrán. Seán Keane continues to delight audiences all over the world with his live performances and recorded work.

When he joined his first group, Shegui, he had already served a long apprenticeship; after travelling throughout Europe with the band, he left to join Reel Union, a group which also featured sister Dolores and accordion player Máirtín O`Connor.

Later, he was part of Arcady, with such well-known names as Johnny Ringo McDonagh, Sharon Shannon and Frances Black. All of his solo albums are platinum sellers and remain in constant demand.

Six solo albums later, Seán Keane continues to delight audiences all over the world with his live performances and recorded work. Booking on (071) 9182599 or colemanirishmusic.com
