Johnny Mháirtn Learaí Mac Donnchadha is one of the finest sean-nós singers in Ireland. He has won numerous awards and All Ireland Con Uí Riada for his singing and has travelled extensively to USA, France and the UK. Johnny has a very unique singing voice, is a supporter of festivals, locally and globally, and teaches sean-nós singing to all ages, ensuring it continues into the next generations. Johnny is a long-time friend of Clifden Arts Festival and we welcome him to this glorious location to share his talents.
Caitriona and Paul Canavan are also mastersof this style of music, and we are fortunate that this special event brings together three of the foremost exponents of sean-nós.
Thanks to Máire and Dominic and the staff.
