Lorcan Mac Mathúna

Instruments: Sean-Nós Singer

Lorcán Mac Mathúna is a shaman of Sean-Nós [Old-Style Gaelic singing], who conjures a world of intense emotions coloured by mythology and legend. His voice will “make you believe in ghosts,” and his songs will bring you through time to witness tales of old Celtic romance and adventure; and experience an oral art of storytelling that stretches from the recent past to the prehistoric.

His work and collaborations has included arrangements based on airs in the oral vocal tradition; contemporary composition; writing collaborations and performances; improvisational and electronic music: and compositional theory development.
