About Take 2 Promotions

Founded in 2014 Take 2 Promotions provides a wide spectrum of services in the area of music and entertainment including consulting, management, worldwide booking, logistics and large scale production.

We specialise in the very best of Irish culture.

Owner, Seán McCarthy has been involved in the professional music scene for more than 10 years and has continuously been associated with many successful acts and productions both on stage & behind the scenes. Having achieved huge success in competition at a young age, Seán toured the world with various productions and bands. In 2011 Seán’s debut solo album release “Halcyon Days” was described by critics as “the most exciting and absorbing debut CD of Irish piping in about twenty years”. He was a founding member of Irish music group FullSet and managed the group until departing in December 2012. Since then he has acted as musical director and producer of the hit show Celtic Legends (www.celticlegends.co.uk). This has seen his work toured all over the world and led to collaborations with artists such as Carlos Nunez.

Along with Jacintha Sharpe he is the creator and producer of the exciting Irish Song & Dance show “Dúlamán – Voice of the Celts” (www.dulamanshow.ie) which has received critical acclaim. Through the success of the show and appearances on “Das Supertalent”, Seán negotiated a major record deal with Sony Music Entertainment and an album produced by German Superstar Dieter Bohlen.

Take 2 Promotions has rapidly become one of Ireland’s foremost producers of Irish Music & Dance Productions as well as an excellent partner for existing Productions and Producers to work alongside. Apart from our productions we offer a full service management and booking agency to some of Celtic & Irish music’s rising stars. Our family of artists and productions can be seen at major festivals and venues worldwide.

Take 2 Promotions are also delighted to manage the talented Irish/Bluegrass crossover group JigJam (www.jigjam.ie)
