Seamus Fogarty

Seamus Fogarty’s most recent release, The Hee Haw EP, came out in October 2023. His first release in three years, it’s a remarkable collection of songs and instrumentals that Seamus has been working on and collecting over the last decade. The lead single ‘They Recognised Him’ has garnered high praise from a diverse range of DJs and personalities across the BBC and RTE, from Cillian Murphy to John Kelly

His last album, ‘A Bag Of Eyes’, was released on Domino Records at the end of 2020. His second album for Domino, it followed on from the success of 2017’s ‘The Curious Hand’, an album that was widely praised for its unique fusion of traditional and electronic instrumentation.  He released his debut full-length, ‘God Damn You Mountain’, on cult Scottish label Fence Records in 2012.

He kicked off 2024 with a sold-out Irish tour and spent much of 2023 touring Ireland & the UK with Lisa O’Neill.  He   has also appeared at many notable festivals including the main stage of Green Man, Eurosonic, Latitude, Electric Picnic, Cambridge Folk and Haldern Pop.  He has appeared on Other Voices and recorded live sessions for Mark Radcliffe on his BBC Radio 2 show and Cerys Matthews on BBC 6Music.

Expect a live show that dips into numerous genres from krautrock to traditional balladry and everything in between, old songs and new, mixing conventional instrumentation with found sounds and live electronics, all fronted by Fogarty’s plaintive vocal and songwriting.
