Seán Tyrrell: An Evening of Irish Traditional Music

September 15, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

“If you’re lucky you come across a voice like Seán’s once in a lifetime”

“When he sings I feel alive.”

– Brenda Fricker 

(Former Oscar winner.)

“The genuine article” 

– Billboard US

As part of the American Irish Historical Society’s Traditional Irish Music Program, Sean Tyrell, One of Irelands major folk voices (Irish Music Magazine) will perform songs from his collection of albums including recently realeased “Moonlight On Galway Bay” on Thursday September 15, 2016. 

“Sean has always been changing and growing in his artistry and in the way he approaches it. Now comes this masterpiece. I suspect strongly we are looking at Male Vocal Album of the Year here. This is all classical music in the Irish vein and all completely new. He does not soar vocally and try to impress us with the magnificence of his voice. All of these songs are sung quietly and with deep emotion,  allows us to really hear and focus on the lyrics. No male Irish singer interprets lyrics better than Sean Tyrrell.”  Bill Margeson. Live Ireland. “Moonlight On Galway Bay”
