Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin has being on my radar for the past few months, and although his debut album ‘The Deepest Breath” came out in November 2022, the album itself has really only landed on my lap over the past few weeks.
It is very rare that a debut album, like Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin‘s “The Deepest Breath” stops me in my tracks and beggars the question, “Why I am only hearing about this now?”
Eoghan Ó Ceannabháin is a Dublin based sean-nós singer and multi-instrumentalist. He comes from a musical family.
His father, Peadar, is a well known sean-nós singer, his mother, Úna Lawlor, a classical violinist, and his two sisters Saileog and Muireann are both accomplished singers and musicians.
Eoghan has been playing music from an early age. His influences include Colm Ó Caoidheáin, Sorcha Ní Ghuairim, Johnny & Kevin Henry, Mick O’Brien, and many others.
He is a founding member of the band Skipper’s Alley, with whom he has toured in France, Germany, the UK, India and Zambia.
