It’s hard to think of an artist in traditional Irish music that is more influential than Seamus Egan. From his beginnings as a teen prodigy, to his founding of the Irish-American powerhouse band Solas, to his current project touring with friends and musical guests, Egan has helped define the sound of Irish music today. Music comes naturally to Seamus Egan, a master of the Irish flute, tenor banjo, guitar, mandolin and tin whistle, among others. As a composer, he was behind the soundtrack for the award-winning film, Brothers McMullen and co-wrote Sarah McLachlan’s breakout hit, “Weep Not for the Memories.” Explore the vast beauty of the Irish tradition.
