A Musical Tale of Four Cities with Tom Sweeney

Tom Sweeney is a genuine rarity in the field of Irish singing. His audiences range from four and five-year-olds right up to the thousands who regularly attend his performances on the stages of the U.S. and Canada’s premier Irish music festivals.

Along with brother Jimmy, the late Donegal fiddle player, P.V.O Donnell and fellow Omagh man, Brian Doherty, known collectively as Barley Bree, Tom spent nearly twenty years in Nova Scotia, Canada plying his musical trade.

Tom is considered by some to be one of the last of the true ballad singers because many of his songs have been handed down through a line of family singers. These include his mother, Mona, his uncle Tommy Makem and his maternal grandmother Sarah Makem, known as one of the world’s great source singers and even further back to his great-grandmother.
