Sean Keane Live in Concert
Following the release of a new album this year, and hailed as ‘the distinctive voice of Ireland,’ Sean Keane will bring his much-loved music to the the Clifden Arts Festival. Sean will be joined by Fergus Feely on mandocello and Pat Coyne on guitar, and will play songs from his albums down the years, including his latest, Gratitude, released earlier this year. Expect songs from 2016’s New Day Dawning, as well as set-favourites such as ‘Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears,’ ‘From Galway to Gracelands,’ and ‘Fields of Gold.’
Sean comes from a musical family in Caherlistrane, Co. Galway, and has been performing around the world for nearly 40 years. Born in 1961, he won his first of 13 Fleadh Ceoil medals for solo singing at seven years of age. He joined his first band, Shegui, in London and released an album with them, before touring America with his sister Dolores in a band called Reel Union. After that, he was a founding member of Arcady.
Sean released his first solo album in the early ’90s and is still recording new material. His compilation three-CD set, Never Alone, still proves popular among his followers. Come along to hear his distinctive Irish tones pull at the heart strings and hear him play up to five instruments on stage.
The Draw for the Astroturf Pitch will take place during this concert.
