Sean Millar with Patrick Freeman

"Millar is half Leonard Cohen and half Jarvis Cocker...Ireland's Best Lyricist." - RTÉ Guide

Sean, also known as Doctor Millar, is a composer, songwriter, performer, and a "musician’s musician." Artists such as Damien Rice, Jack Lukeman and Gavin Friday have sung Sean Millar’s songs and praised his musical and lyrical style. Hot Press named him "Ireland’s best singer/song-writer" and The Irish Times described Sean’s lyrical works “the best collection of short stories I have never read.” Percussionist Brian Fleming, specializing in the traditional Irish percussion instruments the bodhrán and bones and the West African djembe, will perform with Millar.

"Patrick Freeman catches your ears with the superbly toned melodic purr of all three tracks on his 'Perfect Fit' EP." - The Irish Times

New York born Patrick Freeman is a guitarist and songwriter currently based in Dublin. He learned guitar from his Brooklyn-born father and claims to have written his first song age 9. He moved to Ireland at age 11 and spent a number of years as a session musician and performer, touring Ireland, the U.S., and the UK. Freeman's 2014 debut EP "Perfect Fit" was followed by his first full length album Cherry Blossom Fall in November 2015.
