This will be a HOUSE CONCERT & potluck near downtown Champaign, IL. Seating is very limited. Reservations are required.

A native of the slower moving West of Ireland, Seán took his time before committing himself to record his first solo album. Seán emigrated to New York in 1968 put together a band “Apples In Winter” and recorded an album in 1974. This did not last too long due to internal differences within the band. He later moved to San Francisco and began a solo career where he rubbed shoulders with some of the greats of the folk scene. Eventually he tired of the road now having a young son and returning to Ireland in the late seventies he continued to work at his music, but seldom played professionally. In 1978 he began working for University College Galway, based in the heart of the Burren in county Clare. He was invited to ‘guest’ on two albums with renowned uilleann piper Davy Spillane and having toured with Davy soon got a taste for the road again.
