West Kerry’s Séamus Begley joins ‘Irish Christmas in America’
Séamus Begley – vocals/accordion
Séamus Begley comes from one of Ireland’s most musically acclaimed families. He is known for his sean-nós (“old style”) singing, hailing as he does from the Irish-speaking region of West County Kerry. Equally brilliant on the accordion, Séamus plays with astonishing energy and spontaneity, belting out jigs, slides and polkas with rapid sprays of ornamentation. Begley has won numerous awards including Best Folk/Celtic Duo at the 2009 Ireland’s Music Awards. “Begley’s voice is buoyant…a joy” says The Irish Times.
