In October 2001 The Séamus Ennis Arts Centre was officially opened in Naul. It began life as a centre to commemorate the life and legacy of renowned piper and folklore collector Séamus Ennis, but it has quickly grown into a vibrant multi-disciplinary venue hosting concerts, comedy, art exhibitions, craft workshops and classes as well as being home to a very successful school of music. It has become a centre of excellence for music and has played host to some of the finest Irish traditional and folk musicians as well as attracting an array of international artists. As its audience has grown so too has SEAC with the addition of The Piper’s Garden outdoor performance space providing the ability to host audiences of up to 500. In more recent times SEAC has stepped up to the challenges brought about by Covid 19 by presenting live-streamed events online. This has allowed it to reach far beyond Naul to an international audience.
2021 is the 20th anniversary of the official opening of SEAC, which will be marked in October by a live concert. This event will bring together musicians who have played in the centre throughout the years as they chat about their memories of time spent in SEAC and more importantly as they once again fill this unique venue with music.
Details will be posted on the webpage closer to the event date.
