Ballina Salmon Festival is delighted to welcome the owner of “the most distinctive voice in Ireland”, the legendary Seán Keane and his unique blend of traditional Irish, folk country and blues to the Twin Trees Hotel, Ballina on Friday, July 13 at 8pm sharp.
Seán, who comes from a very musical family in Caherlistrane, Co. Galway has been performing around the world for nearly 40 years.
Born in 1961, he won his first of 13 Fleadh Cheoil medals for solo singing at 7 years of age. He joined his first Band called Shegui in London and released an album with them. He then toured America with his sister Dolores in a band called Reel Union and was a founding member of Arcady. Sean released his first solo album in the early 90’s and is still recording new material.
Sean continues to sing songs like ‘Isle of hope Isle of Tears’, ‘From Galway to Gracelands’, and ‘Fields of Gold’ on his set each night.
His compilation 3 CD set entitled ‘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.
