Drogheda, County Louth
Sean Mathews is between the Folk Traditionalist, the Eclectic and the Demonstrator. He is not afraid to polarise or to galvanise. All of the above applies to this one.
Recorded in a 300 year old martello tower called Millmount, Sean's debut album 'Dreaming is Allowed' features a mix of string instruments and delivery styles. Dreaming is Allowed presents the existential, joyful, political and loving tales of a young man living a blue collar life in a regional town in Ireland.
Sean's live set features a mix of Singer-songwriter style songs, Unaccompanied traditional songs and songs with a four piece band. This mixed pot of energy creates a unique experience best seen in person.
The road has now opened ahead for Sean as he sets his stall in the World of Folk.
