SAILEOG NÍ CHEANNABHÁIN
Saileog Ní Cheannabháin is a musician, singer and composer. A native Irish speaker, her sean-nós singing style is mainly influenced by singers from Iorras Aithneach in the Connemara Gaeltacht - her earliest influence being her father, Peadar. She plays traditional music on fiddle, piano and viola, and also studied classical piano for twelve years at DIT Conservatory of Music & Drama. In 2012, Saileog released an album of sean nós songs that were collected by Seamus Ennis in the 1940s in Iorras Aithneach, Connemara. Saileog also did research work for the project Amhráin Ó Iorrus, a recording of songs from Erris, North Mayo, which were collected at the beginning of the last century. Saileog's most recent album, Roithleán, was released last year.
