A gathering of some of Seamie's closest musical alliances gathered to pay due tribute to this much loved Sligo musician
Seamie O’Dowd is one of the most loved and respected musicians in this country. Nowhere is that admiration and respect stronger to be found than in his home county. On this night we celebrated the legend that is….Seamie O’Dowd.
A virtual one man band, Seamie came from a hugely musical family and was steeped in the musical traditions of South County Sligo from an early age. His solo album ‘A Handful of Earth’ is regarded by many as one of the classic albums of the past few decades.
In this very special concert we enjoyed a full performance of this classic album followed by a gathering of some of Seamie's closest musical alliances who payed due dedication to this musical hero of many Sligo people.
