Seán joins 3 other artists in the 2019 Archive Challenge concert.

For the past few years at the Folk Alliance International conference, the American Folklife Center has been organizing “Archive Challenges,” at which we ask an array of different folk musicians to learn material from AFC’s archive and perform it in a special showcase. Last year we brought this program here to the Library of Congress, and now we're doing so again! For this edition, AFC has invited 4 distinguished artists to dig deep into our archive and put their own creative stamp on the songs and tunes they found here. Each of the artists will perform a few songs from the archive to show what a tremendous resource it is for creative work.
