How important is the understanding of a language to one's singing? I think this could be an interesting discussion in the context of Sean Nós and other types of song in Ireland.Continue

Looking for the words to "The Red Knickers" (Not for the easily-offended or faint of heart). Thanks.

Hey Mike. Good of you to drop by,....with gifts, no less. Can always count on you provide us with a bit o' news and entertainment. With the exception of "Jambalaya" (only because it was so unique and unexpected of your style), I thoroughly enjoyed your posting of

Anyone out there ?  Looks like a 3 month lull for sean nós and trad..... Well, here is an album I've just released : "Irish Sean nós; gypsy and cajun" at the Irish Roots Cafe.  I'd like to put on an event at some point for Sean Nós and trad here in the midwest..... but I'd be needing some help to do it !

All the best,

Invitation to Join Us!!! For anyone that has heard the sound of a solo voice and felt it within their soul, this might be the group that might help you pursue an understanding of what that's all about. I, myself, enjoy going back to page ONE of our "Comment Wall" to see or revisit some of the interesting aspects of VOICE as an instrument. Please visit us and explore. You might find it enjoyable, in the least, and informative, in the most.

Hey Mike. I can always count on you to be in the thick of things. Just watched your Irish Roots Café productions of First Practice/Finding Sean No's Backstage Show, Finding Sean No's/Irish Songs and your interview with Susan McFadden of Celtic Woman. I must admit I sat smiling through the whole time. I especially enjoyed Kiernan Markey's broom dance, as well as Jim Windels flute and guitar/voice presentations. Your efforts and accomplishments are to be applauded and praised. Keep us all informed on your endeavors. Slainte,

Hello Dhomhnaill, got your message.  I just interviewed Susan McFadden of Celtic Woman on tour in the U.S..  While Celtic Woman sings in a whole different way from old style 'sean nós' to be sure, they do sing several sean nós songs in the Irish, and some of the arrangements are pretty good.  Here is my short interview with Susan McFadden preparing for Colorado concert at Red Rock:

Take a look at our first beginners session, with introductions, songs and dances.  Starting with a wider view of things as we have our first practice !  Would be great to grow this into our 2nd sean nós gathering....

Ï'm very interested. sadly here in the Netherlands there are not many like minded people. i've just spend four weeks in Ireland, County Clare and County Galway mainly, and I had a great time there the singing is really popular there and they've got some great singers. i think I'll have to move over to Erin's green isle for good!
