I'm an Irish band-leader and singer/songwriter and I play guitar, bodhran and whistles. I'm looking for a solo position but would welcome forming groups with like-minded musicians. I can entertain and hold a crowd to the extent several of my weekly residencies in Auckland have lasted up to ten years. I understand crowds and perform accordingly. I can play the standard old Irish songs and tunes but also crank out some contemporary covers and originals when required. I have a very strong work ethic and understand teh need to fit in with whatever the hosts demands are.

Sean’s first band was a rock outfit called Partisan that he joined when in London in 1986. Partisan enjoyed great live success playing at some of London’s best small music venues including The Mean Fiddler, Covent Garden’s Rock Garden and The Powerhouse.

My first musical experiences were as a teenager in London playing original rock music. I moved to Auckland NZ in the 90's and have been playing Irish music there ever since, I'm now a full-time musician, living comfortably in The Coromandel area and still getting a buzz from playing music, sometimes up to five times per week.
