SEÁN MILLAR SOLO LIVE
A debut of new songs by Seán Millar alongside some of his better known material.
“Millar is half Leonard Cohen and half Jarvis Cocker…along with Mark Cullen of Pony Club, he remains Ireland’s greatest lyricist” RTE Guide ****
“He’s the poet laureate of Dublin’s dark side, an inner-city visionary who sees the ugliness beneath the cosmopolitan façade and the beauty in the forgotten corners of the capital. Every visitor to Dublin should be given a copy of this – to see the real Dublin in all its ragged glory” Kevin Courtney Irish Times * * *
Seán Millar, in his 20 year music career has won great critical acclaim as a performer, a recording artist and a composer for Theatre.
In 2008, after several years working as a composer, creating socially engaged collaborative choral music, he won the Arts Council ‘Once-off’ Award to compose the spoken-word and song cycle Silver Stars for the Bealtaine festival.
He was commissioned to rewrite it for the 2009 Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre festival. This version of the show has since traveled to New York, Paris, Finland and New Zealand, with many sold out shows and making national news in several countries.
In 2010 he released of the people ,a new album of ten songs. He has toured as a solo artist in Ireland, England, France, Switzerland, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, the United States and Canada. He has performed on countless TV and radio shows both in Ireland and abroad. Find out more about Seán on his website.
