Saileog Ní Cheannabháin is a musician, singer and composer. A native Irish speaker, her sean-nós singing style is mainly influenced by singers from Iorras Aithneach in the Connemara Gaeltacht.
She plays traditional music on fiddle, piano and viola, and also studied classical piano for twelve years at D.I.T., and subsequently at University College Cork. Having graduated with a BMus (2009), U.C.C. awarded her the Seán Ó Riada Prize, for a study of the Songs and Singers of Iorras Aithneach.
She has performed at various festivals and venues in Ireland and abroad, including Féile Joe Éinniú, Scoil Geimhreadh Merriman, Féile Chois Cuain, Cooley-Collins Festival, Féile an Fhómhair, Éigse Dhiarmuid Uí Shúilleabháin, Scoil Cheoil an Earraigh, Scoil Samhradh Willie Clancy, Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann, Clare Festival of Singing, Inishowen Singing Festival, Louth Contemporary Music Festival, University of Cambridge, Toledo (Spain), and in Scotland for Cuairt na bhFilí, and BBC Alba's Dhá Fhillte programme.
In 2012, Saileog released an album of sean nós songs that were collected by Seamus Ennis in the 1940s in Iorras Aithneach, Connemara. Saileog also did research work for the project Amhráin Ó Iorrus, a recording of songs from Erris, North Mayo, which were collected at the beginning of the last century.  She has recorded a track with Ensemble Ériu on their debut album, and also features on the Tunes in the Church compilation album.
Saileog has recently released a new album of Irish traditional music and sean nós songs, Roithleán (October 2016), on the Raelach Records label.
The recording also includes some of her own tune compositions. It features solo piano, fiddle, viola, and sean nós singing, as well as tracks with guest musicians.
