Six comments

Sean Nugent and his family are among the many fine memories I have of hospitality, warmth, humour, chat, music, song, dance, talent… I hope there many more opportunities for sharing such things again after this short existence reaches its end…

"Seán Nugent is nowadays perhaps best known for being the father of the US-based flute player Larry Nugent. In his own lifetime he was known as the leader of the Pride of Erin Ceili Band.

His music is largely unknown outside of Fermanagh where he lived. A collection of his tunes called The High Hills of Largy and an accompanying CD have been published.

His most recorded tune is The Monument, Larry Nugent recorded it on his CD Two for Two, it was also recorded by Dave Flynn and Ciarán Swift on Flynn’s Draíocht CD and it features in Sarah McQuaid’s Irish DADGAD Guitar Book and CD." ~
