Irish Sean Nós & traditional singer
Mike O’Laughlin reached the national stage in Dublin, Ohio at the largest three day Irish fest on the planet, in 2014. Vocalist with the Irish Roots Cafe house band, he performed in the first all Irish language song stage show in the midwest in 2012, and ranked #1 in the U.S. as a celtic artist on Reverbnation (for nine months). He has the honor of singing Sean Nós (old style) at the annual Gaelic Mass in Kansas City, and currently broadcasts live, streaming song shows on the web. His first album made the top ten list on Tradconnect for 2013, (the largest online collection of Trad Irish musicians in the world).

Worldwide Notice
His songs are found on YouTube, Vimeo, Spotify, and iTunes today. Early influences include Joe Heaney of Galway, Cathy Jordon of Dervish, and Niamh Parsons from whom he has taken instruction. He founded the ‘Sean Nós gathering’ in Kansas City (2014), with five free events at four locations in the region, along with the band.

This second album, the first that the artist has had mastered, contains selections in Irish and English. The Kansas City singer had the mastering done in Dublin, Ireland making the deadline for December of 2014 advance release. His song origins go back as far as the 17th century.
