You Really Don't Know Irish Song, do you now ?

language as Sean Nós, if the style fits. Most

insist it have cultural ties to Ireland and her


We also have 'Sean Nós Nua' which can have

new adaptations, orchestras, and all types of

instrumentation. But then, this is just my

passing opinion,

I am by far no expert, the best way to learn

what Sean Nós is : Listen to it being sung.

We have several excellent examples on our

Sean Nós page here:

Our Favorites

Beginning to understand it, we have favorites.

We include on our web page:

Liam O Maonlai (Sadhbh Ni Bhruinneallaigh)

Darach O Catháin (Óró sé do bheatha 'bhaile)

Nell Ní Chróinín - (An Lacha Bacach)

iarla O Lionaird - (Lament of 3 Three Marys)

Call for Sean Nós

On my podcast we called for Sean Nós songs and

singers to make an appearance. We let them define

the term as they saw it. It definitely means different

things to different individuals today. I hope this

broadcast will help spread the word and create

interest in the field of Sean Nós today.

Organizations like Comhaltas provide a venue for

developing your talents in this arena - should you

decide to pursue things more seriously...

This would be a bottom up movement to be sure.

Thank to all who have cared enough to participate,

you have made a great contribution to the effort.

My first attempt online today.

I make no claim to being an expert, nor a singer,

nor an experienced Irish linguist, but I kicked

off the first show myself today, with a song in Irish.
