An Evening with Sean Tyrrell

FRIDAY OCTOBER 13TH DOORS 6.45 BEGINS 7.15PM

A native of the slower moving West of Ireland, Sean took his time before committing himself to record. Sean emigrated to New York in 1968 and slotted into the folk club scene in Greenwich Village and returned to Ireland in the mid seventies. Sean has toured Ireland, England, the Continent, America and Australia with notable musicians. 

‘Message of Peace’ is moving, engaging and a remarkable story of a lesser-known Irish hero John Boyle O’Reilly (1844-1890); in both spoken word and song mapping his life and work. Songs in the show allow Tyrrell connect history of the 19th century and modern times in a seamless way. Song lyrics are drawn from a wide variety of sources: Oscar Wilde, Francis Ledwidge etc. 

Using an array of instruments, Tyrrell weaves effortlessly between narrative, instrumental and song.
