Profile Information

Seamus Rutledge: Singer and Songwriter.

Mayo native Seamus Rutledge has established a reputation as one of the most respected contemporary songwriters currently at work.

He has released three well received and critically acclaimed albums to date. His latest offering Elementary Chaos was launched at Cuirt Literary Festival 2014. He has also performed songs from the albums live on the RTE Radio 1 Arts show Arena and featured on the John Creedon radio show.

Ruttledge’s repertoire is unflinching as it rails against the human frailties of blame, self-interest, hedonism, and corporate consumption in songs like War, You Didn’t Either, and Edge of The World.

But there is redemption and hope too, not least in songs like I Feel Blessed, Orphan Child, Better Man, and Say It Easy.  In reviewing Ruttledge's music Shay Healy had this to say "the songs of Seamus Rutledge cut deep into the soul, and straight to the chase. According to poet Pat Ingoldsby Seamus Ruttledge’s songs and music are “gentle, mighty healing, and exceedingly beautiful.”

Rutledge is a regular performer at some of Galway’s finest venues including the Roisin Dubh, The Crane, and Campbell’s Tavern. He also has become a regular at the major festivals including Electric Picnic, the Cuirt Literary Festival, Westport Arts Festival, and Clifden Arts Festival. He continues to write, record, and release new material.

In this silent land

Say nothing

And keep saying it

In this silent land.

Men draped in cassocks

Possess a Nation’s secrets

To barter for souls over open graves

And we stay silent
