Sean-Nós Singing: Irish Traditional (2023 program)

Amelia Hogan
Workshop Area 1 / 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Amelia Hogan will share a song or two from her extensive repertoire of traditional Irish songs ‘as Gaeilge’ (in Irish) and walk the group through a breakdown of approaching the tradition with examples as Gaeilge, & in English, and teach a song from the Sean Nos tradition.

Amelia Hogan is an impeccably authentic singer of Celtic music, and her heart comes through in honeyed tones on Irish, Scottish, British, and American-styled vocals. She sings in the Irish music tradition of Sean-Nós, or “old style”, a highly lyrical solo a cappella style, as well as with accompaniment, plays bodhran and a small 22-string Welsh lap harp, and has toured internationally to global acclaim

On her newest release: Taking Flight, in spring of 2023:

“A brilliantly conceived celebration of a communal sound …. remarkably evocative vocals and the nuanced instrumental arrangements …. Hogan is a master, and Taking Flight is a masterpiece” – Jerry Clark,
