Seumas Gagné and Friends
Seattle Folklore Society presents a special evening featuring internationally acclaimed harpist Seumas Gagné.

Combining harp and voice with personal stories of his Gaelic adventures, Seumas creates an evening of great music, humor and wit.  For this concert, Seumas will be joined by an exciting lineup of stellar local Celtic musicians  expect the concert to soar to an amazing level.

His past performances have been described as magic, delighting audiences with the synergy and art of the musicians as well as heartfelt stories of his journey.
Gaelic song explores the human experience in an intimate way that anyone can understand and appreciate with a little help from a knowledgeable guide who can dissolve the language barrier.

A Cornish music graduate, Seumas has been playing the music of the Scottish and Irish Gaels for more than thirty years. His love and passion for the music shines through every piece.

Seumas is one of the founders of Slighe nan Gaidheal (say: SLEE-uh nun GAY-ull), Washington's Gaelic language and cultural society and teaches Gaelic in their language classes.

In 1997, Seumas journeyed to the Royal Scottish National Mòd (a Gaelic music competition) in Inverness, Scotland where he won the solo harp performance. At the time, he was the only American to have won this award.

In 2001, he returned to the Mòd in Scotland with a team of four friends and won the first-ever competition for waulking songs (ancient tradition of wool milling), sponsored by the Harris Tweed Authority.

Seumas is a noted judge, instructor and performer in harp festivals around the country.

As one of the founding members of the band Wicked Celts, Seumas recorded a CD with them, Prophecy and Blessing, in 1997.

Seumas' first solo CD, Baile Àrd, was released in February 2012. It includes a mix of traditional and original songs in Scottish Gaelic, as well as traditional dance music. Instructional videos at his web site, www.seumasgagne.com help fans learn the choruses of these songs.

Don't miss the opportunity to experience this internationally acclaimed musician and get your Gaelic on!
