About the Artist:
Seo Linn are back with their powerful new album ‘Anuas’ set for release towards the end of this year. Fresh from shows in Australia and Italy and an Irish tour, the band are taking their songs to the stage at Púca Festival on the 29th October.
Multi-award winning contemporary folk group, Seo Linn, formed in 2013 while living and working together in the heart of Conamara. Their unique fusion of traditional and contemporary music, and their electric live show, have earned them thousands of followers and brought them all over the world, performing and headlining festivals like the Milwaukee Irish Fest in the US, Groundswell Music Festival in Australia. Bustofolk and Celtic Wave in Italy to name a few. At home, they have performed in Croke Park, The Aviva, The 3Arena and headlined their own show in Vicar Street. They were involved in large scale songwriting and performance projects such as the Official FAI Euro 2016 song and the widely acclaimed RTÉ Centenary concert. They have two releases to their name; their debut album ‘Solas’ and their EP ‘Marcus in the Wood/Marcas sa gCoill’, containing fan favourites ‘Buy Me Time/Bain a Glas’ and ‘Darkness Shines a Light/Soilsiú an Lae’.
The group has already amassed millions of views and listens on their various social media channels. Their spine-tingling rendition of ‘Óró ‘Sé do Bheatha Abhaile’ is the most watched version of the song on YouTube with a staggering 8 million views.
Their current single, ‘Siúil a Rún’ from their forthcoming album, was recorded in Black Mountain Studios by the acclaimed producer, James Darkin (Rihanna, Gavin James, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh). The video was recorded in the unique 500 year old ‘Hole in the Wall’ pub in Kilkenny.
Their second single, ‘Cailleach an Airgid’ is due for release in the coming months. It’s an explosive reimagination of the old Conamara song containing new melodies and musical ideas. Seo Linn has described it as “incredibly fun to play live!”.
