Lively Irish songs and music, recorded live in Clifden bars.
“Redemption” is an album of entirely original music written by Seanie Vaughan. It was inspired by the music Seanie grew up listening to in his family pub in Connemara, by the various characters Seanie has encountered and by the ruggedness of the landscape of the area he was born in.
Born and raised in Clifden in the heart of Connemara, Michael Carey has been singing and playing for the last twenty years in local pubs. More recently, his music has taken him onto the international stage, thrilling audiences in the USA and all over Europe. This album is a selection of the ballads he grew up singing and some more contemporary songs.
“Tae on the Bog”

Joseph is from Letterkenny in Donegal and Michael is from Clifden, Connemara, Galway. They got together by chance in 2010 and have played music together ever since.
