The worlds leading author in the field of Irish roots, Mike sings and publishes books, in Irish (gaeilge) & English.
He is devoted to the old style of Irish song called 'Sean Nós', sung in Irish: raw, solo, learned by ear, in historical context. 'Non-modal'. This traditional album is a shout out to his Irish ancestors.
