The Riverbank Arts Centre is proud to present Sean Keane to music fans in Co. Kildare.

Diversity is the name of the game for Seán Keane. For the fifth year running he has been voted Best Male Folk Singer by the readers of Irish Music Magazine no mean feat. There is no way of mistaking the unique voice of Seán Keane and his new album, Valley of the Heart , delivers a range of material which showcases it at its very best. From County Galway, Seán's musical background is impeccable. He is a member of one of Ireland's most celebrated musical families with a long tradition of music and singing on both sides.

Traditional songs sung in a traditional style marked his earliest performances, which began in childhood. Almost as a hobby, he spent his youth collecting All Ireland titles a mammoth 13 in all for singing such songs. His early career remained close to the traditional, as he sang with such groups as Shegui, Reel Union and Arcady, the latter of which also featured Sharon Shannon.

His solo albums have not been exclusive in genre though the style of singing they contain is unique to Sean Keane and always incorporate sean nós undertones. While primarily a fork singer, he successfully mixes country, blues and pop songs.
