Sean Nos Singers
OLaughlin, who is the most published
author in Irish genealogy, is also a sean
nos singer with works appearing on
iTunes, Amazon and Spotify. Sean
nos mean ‘old style’, and these songs
are most often sung solo, in the Irish
language, with a sense of history.
Mike would like to make note of any
Sean Nos singers in the area, for
possible future collaborations. Several
of his albums are available on iTunes for review:

This year our appearances with songs in Irish
included a March 1 webcast on concert window,
Irish Dinner in Gladstone MO, Irish Dinner in
Louisburg KS, and a special Gaelic Mass in
Kansas City. Several appearances were on the
official Seachtaine na Gaeilge calendar.

The Seachtaine na gaeilge folks support
the use of Irish in any way possible,

be able to speak. This is what it takes
to involve everyone in the movement.
