Keane set for Borrisokane gig

The Session @TESSBURKES is a series of monthly concerts taking place in 2024. Beginning in January, and we are thrilled to start the series with acclained singer Seán Keane from County Galway.

He is described as the greatest musical find of the 1990s. Traditional Irish, folk and even country and blues songs all lend themselves to his unique style and unforgettable voice. Growing up in a family of singers and musicians, Seán learned the sean nós style of singing from his mother and his aunts.

Singing was his life, even in early childhood. By the time Seán reached his teens, he had collected thirteen All-Ireland medals in fleadh cheoil competitions. He was by then an accomplished whistle and flute player as well and had taken up the uilleann pipes and bodhran.

Seán embarked on his solo career in 1993. ‘All Heart, No Roses’ received rave reviews and was chosen as Debut Folk Album of the Year by Q Magazine. In the years following, success continued with Meteor Award nominations, Best Male Folk Performer from Irish Music Magazine (three times), a similar award from the London Irish World, as well as numerous Irish accolades. ‘A Portrait’, a collection of Seán's songs, is a multi-platinum Irish seller. All of his solo albums are platinum sellers and remain in constant demand. Six solo albums later, Seán Keane continues to delight audiences all over the world with his live performances and recorded work. He tours regularly with his band in Ireland, Austria, Germany, the US and Canada as well as appearing at major festivals worldwide, and this will be one of his first shows in 2024.

He continues to delight audiences all over the world with his live performances and this is an unmissable opportunity to see him perform in such an intimate setting on Monday, January 25, 2024. Doors at 6.30pm. Limited tickets are now on sale from eventbrite and from Tess Burkes. Contact Mark, 086 1672756
