â(Eoghan has) a creative streak on par with some of this country's greatest-ever songwriters. The lyrics of The Deepest Breath are proof and testament to that. Incredibly powerful words which not unlike the great Liam Weldon, are words that belong to and represent the working people. Words of hope for the overlooked and hard done by.â - Myles OâReilly

EOGHAN Ã CEANNABHÃIN
Eoghan Ã CeannabhÃ¡in is a Dublin-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. His musical roots are in sean-nÃ³s singing - the style of his father - and he grew up listening to the likes of Sorcha NÃ Ghuairim, SeÃ¡n âac Dhonncha, Colm Ã CaoidheÃ¡in and other greats from the tradition. He is also influenced by folk singers from the English language tradition such as Liam Weldon, Luke Kelly, Anne Briggs, Margaret Barry, and Thomas McCarthy.
Eoghan has performed and recorded with a number of different bands, including Dublin-based Skipperâs Alley, Irish/Scottish/Manx Gaelic collaboration Aon Teanga: Un Chengey and folk/electronica band Jiggy. He also collaborates with Clare fiddle and viola player Ultan OâBrien. Their debut album Solas an Lae won best album at the RTÃ Folk Awards in 2021.
Over the past few years, Eoghan has come into his own as a solo artist and songwriter. His songs - written in both English and Irish - build on his sean-nÃ³s singing foundations but combine hard-hitting lyrics with other musical influences to create a rich, contemporary sound. He recently released his debut solo album, âThe Deepest Breathâ.
For this intimate live show, Eoghan will be joined by Ian Kinsella on guitar & vocals; and Kaitlin Cullen-Verhauz on cello & vocals.
