Sean Keane - The Distinctive Voice of Ireland

Seán’s songs encompass a mixture of traditional Irish folk music, blues, and country. While his roots are in old Ireland with the Keane family tradition of Sean nós singing, it is his unique and distinctive voice that lends itself beautifully to many different genres and his skill on the flute, whistles and pipes with which he punctuates songs, that make his work unforgettable. He released his 11th solo album, Gratitude accompanied by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra in 2018.

Tickets €30.00 (plus booking fee)

“In the Belly of the Mother” - IMBOLG 2023

“Darkness is not the absence of light. Darkness is the womb of Light” - Fred La Motte

For the first time, modern Ireland is celebrating our matron saint Brigid, as a national holiday. And just as the Celtic wheel moves delicately into our Celtic Springtime (Imbolg) too.

We are on the journey of getting to know Brigid a little better ourselves too.

So far, there has been no rushing through Brigid’s energy. Instead, she is asking us to dance slow gentle steps towards a new light waiting in the darkness.

We have said ‘YES’ to HER invitation & now, we explore new ways of being together.  As we dance these steps of collaboration, creativity, nurturing, holding, intuition, pausing and presence, we sense the authenticity and deepening of connection with each other and those we meet along the way. We don’t do this alone.

Brigid has chosen ‘Friar’s Gate Theatre’, Kilmallock, Co Limerick to be the creative cave, where our sacred art can be birthed into the world.

This art will be on display for the whole month of February.  We hope you enjoy.

A launch event is planned for Saturday, 4th Feb, 3pm-5pm
