Seamus Cater (1970), currently resident in Amsterdam, mixes research based song writing and new acoustic music. His 2016 album, The Three Things You Can Hear, released on the Lebanese imprint Annihaya Records (CD), and Nearly Not There Records (LP), draws on the delivery and instrumentation of British revivalist folk music but filters this through minimal, or repetitive playing techniques. With duet concertina as accompaniment for voice, he searches for spectral sonic connections between these two sources. His songs are noted for their conceptual narratives, often reinforced with musical parallels.
Past releases include The Anecdotes (2012) with Viljam Nybacka, and When We Get to Meeting (2010) with Woody Sullender. Seamus co-organises the DNK-Amsterdam concert series and as DNK Ensemble makes performance pieces and compositions with Koen Nutters. Recently he has performed works by Antoine Beuger, Ryoko Akama and Michael Pisaro.
