Seán KeaneBook Now
Born in a small village called Caherlistrane near Tuam, Co. Galway, Seán Keane is for many The Distinctive Voice of Ireland. He grew up in a family of singers and musicians and learned the Sean-nós style of singing from his mother and his aunts.
Seán’s musical voice is unique and his songs encompass a mixture of traditional Irish folk music, blues, and country. While his roots are in old Ireland with the Keane family tradition of Sean-nós singing, his voice lends itself beautifully to many different genres and his skill on the flute, whistles and pipes with which he punctuates songs make his work unforgettable.
Seán’s songs such as “Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears”, “Galway to Graceland” and “Home Away From Home” are enduringly popular as is his more recent material like “Paint Me a Picture of Ireland”, “Natures Little Symphony” and “One More Hour.”
In 2020 he connected with audiences all over the world with his weekly Facebook live performances known as the Carragh Sunday Sessions.
He tours regularly with his band in Ireland, Austria, Germany, the US and Canada as well as appearing at major festivals world-wide and is currently embarking on a successful tour.
He continues to delight audiences all over the world with his live performances and all of his recorded work.
