The second solo studio album from Enda Seery has arrived! Síocháin na Tuaithe has been two and a half years in the making following the release of Enda’s first critically acclaimed album The Winding Clock in 2010. The Winding Clock album from Enda was mainly whistle orientated but Síocháin na Tuaithe sees Enda expand to flute and vocals too.
Enda, 29 from Streamstown, Co. Westmeath in the heart of Ireland is a full-time traditional Irish musician, composer and teacher along with being a Comhaltas administrator. This new album again features many of Enda’s original compositions (9 in total) along with a number of tunes that Enda got from his time spent in Limerick on the Masters course in Traditional Irish Music Performance where he graduated with First Class Honours in January 2013. Sam’s Delight a reel composed by Enda and recently recorded by button accordion player Colin Nea on his album Between the Jig and the Reels features on the opening track of Síocháin na Tuaithe.
The album will be available to buy from www.endaseery.com from Monday, April 1st (not an April Fools!).

- Áras an Mhuilinn, Mullingar, Co. Westmeath on Friday, April 26th @ 8 30pm.
- Fleadh Nua festival, Ennis, Co. Clare on Saturday, May 25th & Sunday May 26th
