The 45 minute documentary was produced with the support of the Arts Council’s 2021 Commission Award and delivered a deeply personal portrayal of the legendary fiddle player, one of Ireland’s foremost artists. It featured many non-commercial recordings of Seán housed in the ITMA collections.

Produced by ITMA’s Seán Potts along with Director Dermot O’Hanlon and editor Maitiú Ó Casaide it included contributions by Matt Molloy, Paddy Glackin, Doireann Glackin and ITMA Director Liam O’Connor.

Future public screenings are being planned for the film which will be available through ITMA channels at a later date.
