“Seán Jacques is an Irish singer-songwriter and guitarist who has the fortune to come from a family
with a deeply rooted connection to the rich and colourful world of traditional Irish music. The fast percussive rhythms of this music have intertwined and interwoven to make up the spinal cord of Seán’s rhythmic acoustic guitar playing. He plays what we like to call “Celtic Guitar”. A style which involves fast rhythmic nuances and “pull-off, hammer-on” technique, while leaning heavily on finger picking too. This guitar style is unique to Celtic countries e.g. Ireland, Brittany but it was heavily influenced by the “London School of Guitar” based in Soho in London in the sixties. Guitarists like Bert Jansch and John Renbourn were the driving force of the “London School of Guitar” which influenced other guitarists like Richard Thompson and Paul Brady. And today Seán Jacque is the one carrying this torch.
Seán has developed his songwriting skills over the past few years where he dances between the world of Irish music, modern music and pop culture. But his style is uniquely acoustic which gives it that handmade quality that one treasures these days. He has been born with a strong voice and when he starts to sing his presence fills the room with a warm glow. He is a confident player. He has won song writing competitions in the past and is one of Germany and Irelands promising young singers/guitarists.”
