Seo Linn are an energetic and fun young band that are bursting onto the Irish music scene with their powerful originals and unique take on contemporary songs with a particular passion for Gaeilge.

Not only have they had continuous success with their involvement in Coláiste Lurgan’s famous YouTube videos, with which they have now garnered upwards of 18 million views, but they have also brought their music all over Ireland and across the seas to places including Boston, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London and even to Uganda with Gorta Self-Help Africa. They appeared on the Late Late Show with their version of Avicii’s Wake Me Up as Gaeilge and have a wide-ranging set list including Gaeilge versions of chart-topping hits and their own original songs. They are the official ambassadors of Seachtain na Gaeilge 2016, during which they proudly translated the massive global hit, Thinking Out Loud for none other than Ed Sheeran to record. On top of this, their new 12-part series, Cleas Act can be seen on TG4 where they travel the country spreading the joys of music and Gaeilge.

They are currently recording their greatly anticipated EP which is due for release in the coming months.

Stiofán, Keith, Daithí, and Kev all hail from various parts of Ireland. They have brought together their musical talents to create a distinctive style that meshes the old and the new. Their sound encapsulates a traditional sense of Irishness through the medium of contemporary, high octane, rhythmic music in what we can only describe as a treat for your ears. This is definitely a band that you need to see live to believe the incredible energy that they bring to the stage.

Seo Linn are set to launch into 2016 with their new single Musicmakers set for release on the 25thMarch. Watch this space!
