Sean Murphy

Sean Murphy lives on Cape Cod and teaches Irish history, music, and dance. He teaches at the Irish Cultural Center of New England in Canton, the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, the Sons of Erin Cape Cod, the Cotuit Center for the Arts, and on Nantucket. He has spoken on Irish cultural and historic issues at libraries and at private and community events around the state.

In 2014 and 2019 he was awarded the Thomas P McCann “Altruism Award” trophy by the Cape Cod St. Patrick’s Day Committee for his “support and commitment to the Culture and Heritage of Ireland and its people.”

He is a graduate of Trinity College Dublin and served on the Dublin City Development Board from 1998 to 2002.

Since the outbreak of the Covid 19 pandemic, he has been presenting his courses online using Zoom, YouTube, and Facebook. He has recently decided to offer online Tin Whistle classes at the Nantucket Community and Music School.

Elizabeth let me play the Red Violin after her performance! The sound was warm and it played with ease. I tried to focus on the instrument but I got completely discombobulated when I realized she had walked away leaving me with the violin. So I just kept playing! Where else in the world could that have happened? Thanks NCMC.

With beautiful practice spaces and meticulously maintained Steinway pianos, a music library stocked full of new and historic scores and a Sibelius-ProTools Independent Learning System!  The Nantucket Community Music Center is the place for learning, exploring, and experiencing music on Nantucket.  Well done!
