TEMPO presents – Voyages: Music of Maine from Across the Sea

With US Scottish National Fiddle Champion Sean Heely

Heely has been praised for his soulful playing and breathing new life into ancient Celtic traditions. Heely is also a singer in the folk style and some of his repertoire includes songs in Scots Gaelic. Guitarist Jeff Morgan will be joining Sean in music from Scotland, Puirt a beul and waulking songs, pipe tunes, ballads, Irish immigration song and tunes, plus a song in Irish - an Spailpin Fanach.
