Seamus is an incredibly talented and well educated musician. I worked with him on a major songwriting project where we had to write and perform a wide range of music, covering various styles.
Seamus has an astounding amount of knowledge about music and the instruments he plays. I myself learnt a lot from him.
Forever the professional, and always passionate about his work, I would highly recommend Seamus.

Seamus plays a lot of live music that I have been fortunate enough to see many tumes and it is always very professional sounding and of high quality. After seeing him and being interested in the guitar I asked him for lessons.He has taught me guitar in person and I have been coming along very well, starting with the basics and building my own personal style with his professional and knowledgable talent.
