Throughout his career, Seamus battled depression, anxiety, and addiction. When not on tour, he uses his gift of music, humor, and an uncanny ability to engage his audience, to tell a compelling story, helping those who struggle with their mental wellness.

Seamus is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Texas A&M College of Medicine where he teaches courses on mental wellness and suicide prevention. He is also a co-founder and board member of the Suicide Prevention Alliance.

Seamus' shows are not for the faint of heart. He will keep you on the edge of your seat for hours so fasten up and enjoy the ride! 

“Seamus Kelleher is a virtuoso guitar player and a gifted storyteller. Put together Kelleher’s incredible guitar playing, his distinguished singing voice, and his totally off the wall sense of humor as an amateur standup comedian, and you end up with a family friendly show unlike anything you have ever seen. He’s one of Galway’s unique treasures.”
