Séamus Egan

Séamus Egan attained his greatest success as a solo artist with his soundtrack for Edward Burns' 1995 film The Brothers McMullen; it spent four months on the world music charts and included the Top Ten hit "I Will Remember You," recorded by Sarah McLachlan. Egan, however, has been an important presence on the Irish music scene for far longer. A four-time winner of the All-Ireland award (on an unprecedented four different instruments), Egan has been a member of a trio also featuring Mick Moloney and Eugene O'Donnell, an all-star congregate of Irish musicians and singers (Green Fields of America), and an Irish trad-folk band (Solas), and he has also been a soloist. In addition, Egan has recorded Irish music with Eileen Ivers, John Doyle, and African percussionist Kimati Dinizulu, and even hip-hop with Vernon Reid of Living Colour.
