Traditional flute music from East Galway

Sean Moloney (flute)

Sean Moloney is a flute player, teacher and composer from County Galway, Ireland. He comes from a long line of traditional flute players going back five generations and is one of the few remaining exponents of the Ballinakill East Galway
regional style. Sean has been recorded for the Irish National Folklore Archives and has produced five CDs, including one of his own compositions. The most recent is a collection of his father’s archival recordings and forms the backdrop for this concert, in which Sean will discuss the East Galway flute tradition and perform pieces from his wide repertoire. Sean plays both Boehme and simple system concert flutes as well as alto flute, tin whistle and fiddle. He is accompanied by his wife Irene on the bodhrán (a wood framed goatskin drum).
