Sean Nos Singing

While looking for a good recording of "Caoineadh na dTri Mhuire" last week I came across Lorcán Mac Mathúna, another new (to me) singer. For anyone who admired his rendition of "Caoineadh na dTri Mhuire" on Friday. . .oh boy, are you in luck! The man is very generous with his videos, so you can have a listen (or several) to some other songs, or sample the tracks from his CD. I have been listening mainly to Scots Gaelic singers for the last few years and it had been some time since I'd had a reminder of how rich the Irish sean nos style is, so the discovery of this website was quite a treat.

Oh, thanks for that! I enjoyed his "Caoineadh na dTri Mhuire" very much, and am delighted to hear more from him.

Try the video version "An Clar Bog Deal" (sp?) especially--whew!
