Sean nós is Irish for old style. A long time ago, at the University of Washington, Erin took lessons from the renowned singer Joe Heaney, regarded as the greatest singer of his time. Born in 1919, Joe was born village of Carna on the rocky western shore of Co. Galway. The songs are sung unaccompanied. While the style is often highly ornamented, the singer remains stoic; the song will tell its story. This class is suitable for all singers. I teach the songs the same way I learned them, by call and response until each detail is right.
