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:
