When it comes to traditional Irish music, few artists are more influential than Seamus Egan. From his beginnings as a teen prodigy to his groundbreaking solo work with Shanachie Records to his founding of Irish-American powerhouse band Solas, Egan has inspired multiple generations of musicians and helped define the sound of Irish music today. In 2017, Egan began touring as the Seamus Egan Project, bringing along friends and musical guests and introducing fans to his immense and influential catalog of music. He’s put his mark on the sound of the Irish flute, tenor banjo, guitar, mandolin, tin whistle and low whistle, among others. Music comes as naturally to Seamus Egan as breath, but his mastery of the tradition is only part of his plan to move the music forward.
