SEANA DAVEY and STEPHEN DOHERTY / BRID HARPER & ARTY McGLYNN
Seana and Stephen
Mayo-born Stephen Doherty began learning music at the age of 4 and through his teenage years began to accumulate numerous all-Ireland medals on whistle, bodhrán, drums and accordion. Seána Davey from Meath is the youngest of a family steeped music and began learning the harp and then piano, continuing her studies through the Royal Irish Academy of Music. She is a five-time All Ireland champion on the harp. Their subsequent individual accomplishments are simply too numerous to note but the pair had been fast friends (and collaborators) for many years before deciding to record a duo album of harp and flute music. Recorded with Tony O’ Flaherty at Sonas Studios in Killarney, they produced the (much lauded) Esdee Sessions. It is rare indeed for two master multi-instrumentalists to share a stage and rarer still for both to share such an intimate musical bond. Book right now to avoid disappointment.
