Seamus is a collector of songs, a “Song Catcher,” specializing in the ballads, songs and lore of Ireland, but he also draws his rich repertoire from Scotland, Australia, the British Isles, and North America. Although he is steeped in the “Irish Song Tradition,” he often includes a wide variety of material in his programs that ranges from “The Great American Song Book” to “Country-Western” from Sing-a-Longs to Broadway Tunes; from Comic Ditties to Murder Ballads; and from Old Favorites to Work Songs and Sea Shanties.
Seamus not only sings the songs but tells their story by providing their histories and explaining their meanings. His shows are educational, entertaining and informative.
Seamus always encourages his audiences to join in the fun by clapping, singing along and by sharing a song, a story, a poem, or a toast and he is always eager to honor requests and to collect new material.
