Jack Lynch is firmly rooted in the seanchaí tradition, as explored in recent times by the late great Eamon Kelly and John Campbell, both of whom he shared a stage with. He combines folkloric elements with ancient Irish myths and Wonder Tales and scurrilous Tall Tales set in the County Cavan.
He has much experience in schools, libraries, hospitals and prisons throughout Ireland and has played at festivals throughout Ireland and in England, Scotland, Belgium, France, Germany, Poland, Estonia, Jordan, Morocco, the West Indies and the US. (most recently at the Smithsonian Institute Folklife Festival)
He is a founder member of Storytellers of Ireland, which he currently chairs.
“A magical word of nods, winks and dry subtle witticisms….the match of anything for sheer imagination and vitality”. (Hotpress)
We are delighted to welcome Jack back to Sneem as one of our tellers. He was here at our second festival in 2013 and we look forward to seeing him again in November.
