Irish Traditional Song Sessions (Sean Nós)

Mike sings in Irish, Sean Nós style, in the Irish Roots Cafe house band, 'Sean Nós Abú' is our motto. Ranked as the #1 Celtic artist in the U.S. on Reverbnation (April 2012 to January 2013).

Traditional Songs are sung in both Irish and English language by this talented band of acoustic enthusiasts. Session performances are informal, in the Sean Nós tradition. Sung solo or in a group acoustic session.

To quote Mike " I normally sing Sean Nós in a

traditional manner, informal, most often seated, and within the audience. Sometimes the songs are scattered, rather than a continuous performance, but can do a formal presentation as well. With the Irish song - anything might happen !" Band info: http://www.reverbnation.com/irishrootscafe
