Read more about Sweeney's debut album and upcoming gig.
Growing up on Achill Island, Sweeney spent his childhood making music and refurbishing vintage VWs – a passion that helped him travel across the globe whilst honing his art. Indeed, his two releases to date, ‘Paddy Song’ and ‘The Quiet Man’, have a touch of the world voyager about them. He takes inspiration from traditional Irish folk and blends it with irresistible rhythms. His debut album, I Am, will be preceded by a slew of Irish gigs during the early part of the year.
Hear: ‘Paddy Song’ is a callback to classic Irish folk tunes.
See: The Teelings/Total Irish acoustic gig with The Mary Wallopers on February 20.
