ABOUT: A concert will feature the traditional Irish music of Seamus Egan, who began as a teen prodigy, performed solo work with Shanachie Records and then founded the Irish-American powerhouse band Solas. He now is one of the leading composers and interpreters of the tradition. As a multi-instrumentalist, he’s put his mark on the sound of the Irish flute, tenor banjo, guitar, mandolin, tin whistle and low whistle, among others. As a composer, he was behind the soundtrack for the award-winning film "The Brothers McMullen," co-wrote Sarah McLachlan’s hit, “Weep Not for the Memories,” and has scored numerous documentaries and indie films.
