Shine the Light
A Presentation by Seamus Kelleher
In Story and Song
For almost five decades, Seamus Kelleher, a native of Galway on the west coast of Ireland now residing in Doylestown PA, has performed as a musician across the U.S. and Europe in venues such as Carnegie Hall in New York and the Excelsior in Rome. This year, he turns 65 and will perform over 160 shows across the US.
Throughout his career, Seamus has battled and managed depression, anxiety, and an addiction to alcohol. In his Shine the Light presentation, he uses his gift of music and an uncanny ability to engage his audience to tell a compelling and sometimes hilarious story raising awareness of the staggering number of Americans suffering mental illness and addiction.
Recent engagements include: Scott & White Medical Center in Temple, Texas; Baylor University Medical Center in Houston; and the School of Rock annual franchise meeting in Philadelphia.
Seamus is also the author of over 100 newspaper and magazine articles on topics ranging from politics, music, and immigration to mental health issues. He holds a Masters Degree from New York University where he studied Media Ecology under the guidance of Neil Postman. He considers his time with Postman, the other faculty members and his peers in the Media Ecology program as the most enlightening period of his life.
