ABOUT SEAN MAGEE
Where it began
Sean began aged 7 playing traditional Irish music in school and took Fiddle lessons with Irish legend Pat McManus. Sean quickly started to get out gigging aged 9 along with his father and they would perform around pubs and venues in the north of Ireland.
A few years on and they where joined by Sean’s siblings Jamie on Button accordion and Eli-Rose sang a few songs. They were called The Magee Family Band and still do some gigs together now and again when they are all free.
At 14 years old Seán won 1st place at The All Ireland Fleadh competition playing fiddle in the under 15 category!
In recent years Sean has been gigging solo, travelling all over the world for gigs in Germany, Spain, New York City, Amsterdam to name a few. He has built up an online following of 20k on Facebook/ Instagram and over these 2020 lockdown months has performed over Facebook live every Friday night to audiences up to 900 people joining him at once.
He joined Donegal man Rory Gallagher from the band Rory and The Island for a year of touring where they played all over Ireland, UK, European tour and even had a weeks residency in RiRa Irish Bar in Las Vegas in 2019.
Sean is now a well established musician and performer playing a wide mix of styles with a lot of energy.
Make sure to catch one of his gigs once they start up again after lockdown.
