The music Sean plays has travelled a long journey and has stood the test of time. Music that has moved with its people, changing and evolving along the way but still retaining its depth and purpose. Sean plays the folk music of Ireland, Scotland, England aswell as the forms they took on and collided with in North America, all of which has roots that go deep throughout many places and cultures. These are songs of the human experience, songs of love and loss, good times and hard and these are also the songs that he writes. Sean is a multi-instrumentalist but plays primarily the guitar and the 5-string banjo in a number of different styles, having learned a great deal on his own and from musical mentors and communities.
