We thank Presenter, John Greene for advance information regarding this evening’s C103 Programme. (S.R.)
By the age of thirteen he had won an amount of All-Ireland medals in Fleadh Cheoil competitions and was an accomplished musician in many instruments.
The London Independent described him as ‘The musical find of the nineties.’
This week on ‘Where the road takes me’, John Greene meets Seán Keane from Galway, a member of the famous musical Keane family and brother to Dolores.
In the programme we hear about……..
Growing up in a family where music meant everything.
How spending time with the ‘forgotten Irish’ in London helped him choose his career. Becoming a recluse after the death of his beloved wife Virginia.
Learning to play the guitar, despite it once being the demon instrument of traditional Irish music.
With plenty to choose from, we hear some of his best loved songs.
The life, times and music of Sean Keane – this Sunday evening on Where the road takes me at 7 – on C103.
