Séamus & Caoimhe Uí Fhlatharta
March 31 @ 20:00 - 21:30
Born into a musical family, siblings Séamus & Caoimhe Uí Fhlatharta hail from the village of An Áird Mhóir in the Gaeltacht region of Connemara, County Galway.
They are noted for their sean nós singing (unaccompanied traditional Irish vocal performance in the Irish language) and their unique arrangements of both Irish and English language songs.
Séamus & Caoimhe take a particular interest in vocal arrangement and harmonization with their performances benefitting from the vocal tones that only families share.
Their Late Late Show performance in 2022 of the soulful lament Anach Cuain captured the mood of the nation and went viral around the world.
They are both accomplished multi-instrumentalists, Irish dancers, and All-Ireland-winning performers who keep the Irish language and their heritage at the heart of all their musical endeavors.
Caoimhe is currently studying for a BA in Irish Music at the Irish World Academy at the University of Limerick. Séamus is studying a BA in Applied Languages which includes Irish, also at UL.
Séamus & Caoimhe have just released their first EP. It is produced by Brian Whelan and Riverdance composer Bill Whelan and recorded at their studio at The Fort, Roundstone, Connemara.
