Seán Keane, from County Galway, is decribed as the "greatest musical find of the '90s" by The Independent. Traditional Irish, folk, and even country and blues songs all lend themselves to his unique style and unforgettable voice. 

When he joined his first group, Shegui, he had already served a long apprenticeship. After travelling throughout Europe with the band, he left to join Reel Union, a group that also featured his sister Dolores and accordion player Máirtín O'Connor. Keane embarked on his solo career in 1993. All Heart , No Roses received rave reviews and was chosen as Debut Folk Album of the Year by Q Magazine. In the years following, success continued with Meteor Music Award nominations; Irish Music magazine also named him Best Male Folk Performer three times.

All of his solo albums are platinum sellers and remain in constant demand. Six solo albums later, Keane continues to delight audiences all over the world with his live performances and recorded work. He tours regularly with his band in Ireland, Austria, Germany, the U.S., and Canada, as well as appearing at major festivals worldwide.
