Keane con­cert in the Quay

Wexford People - - NEWS -

The award-win­ning singer and mu­si­cian Sean Keane will play a gig in the Stella Maris Cen­tre in Kil­more Quay on Fri­day, May 25.

Known for his dis­tinc­tive sean-nós style voice, the County Gal­way mu­si­cian and brother of fa­mous Ir­ish singer Dolores Keane, was de­scribed as ‘the great­est mu­si­cal find of the 90’s’ by the Lon­don In­de­pen­dent.

Grow­ing up in a mu­si­cal fam­ily, he was taught his first song by Dolores at the age of six when he won his first Fleadh Ceoil.

He learnt sean-nós from his mother and his aunts. By the age of 13, he had no less than 13 All-Ire­lands for tra­di­tional singing un­der his belt and he was also an ac­com­plished whis­tle, flute and uil­leann pipes play­ers.

A founder mem­ber of the group Ar­cady with Sharon Frances Black and Sharon Shan­non, he has a unique style and un­for­get­table voice which lend them­selves to tra­di­tional Ir­ish mu­sic, folk and even coun­try and blues songs.

He has per­formed in venues all over the world with his band and has re­leased 11 solo al­bums and col­lab­o­rated on five oth­ers.

Tick­ets at €25 are avail­able from the Stella Maris Cen­tre, email man­ager@stel­la­mariscen­tre.com.
