Sean Nos--Old Style Singing

Several years ago I got to know Mike O'Laughlin from the Irish Roots Cafe. Mike publishes Irish genealogy books and resources, and he's a wealth of information. His podcasts are always interesting as well.

But lately Mike's taken up a hobby, Sean-nós, or old style Irish singing. I love that style, especially done in English so I can understand the words (although the melodies are lovely) because the songs tell stories, and you know...I'm all about stories!

Have a listen and tell me what you think!
