Info about Aengus:
Born in Dublin Ireland, and raised in rural Canada, Aengus Finnan's emotive story-style songs, heartfelt performances, and "get-it-done" work ethic saw him touring extensively across Canada, the Arctic, Australia, Japan, and America on the folk club, festival, and theatre circuit.
His original compositions as well as interpretations of traditional and contemporary songs reveal the stories of real people and familiar places with an honesty that won him the prestigious New Folk Songwriters' Award at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas (an honour shared by the likes of Lyle Lovett & Guy Clark).
He released two critically acclaimed albums, Fools Gold (1999) and North Wind (2002), founded the Art Beat community outreach initiative for the OCFF, later served as Board President of the OCFF, founded the Shelter Valley Folk Festival where he served as Artistic Director for 7 years, and co-founded The Way We Feel, an annual Gordon Lightfoot tribute. For the past 3 years he has worked as Touring Officer for the Ontario Arts Council.
His love song, Lately, was awarded the Songs from the Heart award, while his haunting song, O'Shaughnessy's Lament, (written in the graveyard of a Northern Ontario silver-mining town) has been recorded by renowned Irish-American tenor Shamus Kennedy. His song, My Heart Has Wings, was aired as part of the final CTV season of Flashpoint.
Aengus returns to touring after an extended hiatus with the 2013 release of his long anticipated live recording Once Upon a Time, and in preparation for a new studio album in 2014.
