New Irish Language Song, Sean Nós group.

Our focus is on 'Sean Nós' and traditional Irish Song,

as well Irish Ballads in the English Language.

 

The Irish Roots Cafe house band !

In its purest form, Sean Nós is sung solo, in the Irish Language,

with a raw, unprocessed sound, and learned as part of an

oral tradition.
