Seán Mac Donnchadha

This album features one of Ireland’s finest sean nós singers, Seán Mac Donnchadha who sings unaccompanied traditional songs in Irish. Four tracks feature the lively accordion playing of Máirtín Ó Cualáin.

Seán Mac Donnchadha is a native of Carna in the Connemara Gaeltacht and he grew up in a rich musical culture. In the social life of the area he mixed with a host of legendary sean nós singers, including Colm Ó Cíodháin and Seosamh Ó hÉanaigh. At the Oireachtas fesitival in 1985, he won the highest accolade for sean nós singing, Corn Uí Riada. He has travelled extensively to sing at festivals and concerts at home and abroad and is heard regularly on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta.

This album was originally issued as an LP in 1986
