Seán Ó Sé - An Irish Legend
Seán Ó Sé
"Seán Ó Sé: Saol Caite le hAmhráin agus Scéalta / A Life in Song and Story"
A new film by Matthew Allen, aired on Irish television channel TG4 on New Year’s Day 2016. It will be available streaming worldwide for free through the month of January. To access the film, click: TG4-SeanOSe (access only available until 10 February 2016).
Seán Ó Sé’s long and illustrious career has touched all bases in the Irish music business spanning from his work in the 1960s in concert, radio, and recording with Seán Ó Riada and Ceoltóirí Chualann across to his many decades of musical performance and story telling in genres as diverse as variety concerts, céilí band, and cabaret. Seán’s musical life is explored within the contexts of his deep attachment to the Irish language, West Cork and Beara, and his passion for his career in teaching and education administration in Cork City. The film features live performances and interviews with longtime associates from the worlds of music and education.
Produced with the support of the UCC School of Music and Theatre, the Cork Film Centre, and Wheaton College, Massachusetts, USA. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
