Seán Garvey from Cahirsiveen, Co. Kerry has long been considered by aficionados as one of Ireland's finest traditional singers, with equal facility in both Irish and English languages. He is also a highly accomplished player of guitar, flute and tenor-banjo. Seán's first solo C.D., "ón dTalamh Amach/ Out Of The Ground", was launched in l998 to great critical acclaim.

Reviews of Seán's first C.D.: 'Mastered, eloquent, intense singing and playing of the highest order make this one of the best albums of the last decade'.

Geoff Wallis, the Rough Guide to Irish Music '....a classic in its genre and a 'must have' for any serious collector''.

P.J. Curtis, World Music authority. '....a dazzling anthology...a landmark among releases of recordings of traditional music and song'.

C. McHale, The Living Tradition, music magazine '..a smouldering multi-dimensional voice..the singer's enveloping velvetness... plumbs a chasmic, nasal sadness in Barr na Sráide'.

Fintan Vallely, Sunday Tribune, national newspaper. '....out and out brilliance...a fine rich voice .. ..strong stuff and well worth the wait'.

Sarah McQuaid, Evening Herald, national newspaper. His second C.D., "The Bonny Bunch of Roses" has just been released.

Reviews of Seán's second C.D.: "Always honest and passionate. Sean is unique and one of my favourite singers"

Aine Hensey, RTE national radio & Radio na Gaelteachta "....this truly sumptuous album"

Geoff Wallis, Folk Music Authority & Critic, "Musical Traditions", (U.K.)

Seán's repertoire is wide-ranging and includes classic songs in both Irish and English. He has received a number of awards and accolades for his singing, including the All Ireland Senior title in l982. On-stage he will sing a sean-nos song at its rawest and most emotionally intense, or songs sensitively accompanied by his own guitar playing. His set also incorporates rhythmically varied instrumental music, mainly on flutes and guitar, from the riches of the Irish music tradition.

Known in Ireland as a 'singer's singer', Seán is also a highly respected authority on the Irish music tradition. He is an honours graduate of Irish Language and Folklore from University College Dublin and has an M.A. in Ethnomusicology from Limerick University. He enjoys combining the roles of guest speaker/performer/educator in a wide variety of cultural forums.
