Music, a Journey of the Spirit

Posted on 22. May, 2014, in Achievement, Music, Uncategorized2 Comments

Singer, songwriter and composer, Eamon Keane is also a counsellor. He comes from an artistic family — actor father, Eamonn, musician mother, Maura Hassett, journalist brother, Fergal, playwright uncle, John B — and his talents are eclectic. In the last year alone, the former Newstalk presenter has performed twice at the National Concert Hall and composed the score for Mná Dibhearta, the TV series about the Famine. His concerts with Dubliner, John Sheahan, sell out. His album, Hang The Moon, is close to achieving ‘gold’ sales. More recently he composed “The John Sullivan Air” for a monthly mass in thanks giving for Fr. Sullivan’s life  and in prayer for his canonisation. Here he talks to Miriam Gormally about the power of music to heal and renew the spirit.

    I loved this gentle interview and the natural way Eamon expresses himself. As someone who regrets not being able to sing, I was heartened with the whole concept of appreciation of music, as in deep listening to it, as being an art in itself. I felt very affirmed as I feel very deeply when listening to particular pieces of music and love to share them with others. Thanks to both interviewer and interviewee!
