But for Seo Linn, the plans are only to get bigger and better. An energetic group of young musicians, they burst onto the Irish music scene with not only powerful original songs, but also unique takes on contemporary tracks with the injection of their passion for Gaeilge.
From Coláiste Lurgan to RTÉ 1916 Centenary Celebrations the boys have been growing and developing their musicality. Seo Linn’s debut original album Solas won the 2018 NÓS Music Awards ‘Album of the Year’ including tracks such as the RTÉ endorsed ‘Music Makers’ for RTÉ Centenary, the Official FAI Euro 2016 anthem, ‘The Irish Roar’ and the beautiful title-track ‘Solas’ recorded with the Cork Youth Orchestra.
High energy, interactive and unforgettable live performances have seen Seo Linn spend the last few months touring Australia while writing new music. They are now back home with a Irish tour culminating in a Headline Show at the famous Whelan’s Live Venue, Dublin on the 14th July before they shoot off to the States for a month long U.S. Tour.
Stiofán, Keith, Daithí, and Kev 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, engaging music in what we can only describe as a treat for your ears. This is a band that you need to see live to believe the incredible energy and engagement that they bring to the stage.
