Thread Name: Sean Nos - Old Style Singing
Subject: RE: Sean Nos - Old Style Singing
I second that, Felipa! I heard Lilis sing and also give a talk on sean nos at Harvard some years ago and he is amazing...I believe he is considered one of the top male singers in the world of this style of music.
re: your PM about Cliff McGann. I don't know him. I have not seen his name anywhere that Gaelic is taught here in Boston, so not sureif he has moved on? It would be nice to hear soe of his music though. Looks like he is no longer on Mudcat either...
I like the singing of Maireadh ne Dhomnaill; very lyrical and lush in that modern way, but she also does a cappella sean nos style...
