Séamus Ennis (Irish: Séamas Mac Aonghusa; 5 May 1919 – 5 October 1982) was an Irish musician, singer and Irish music collector. He was most noted for his uilleann pipe playing and was partly responsible for the revival of the instrument during the twentieth century, having co-founded Na Píobairí Uilleann, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of the uilleann pipes and its music.

Made in recording sessions by Alan Lomaz and Seamus Ennis in 1951, this was one of the first comprehensive surveys of the folk music of Ireland. Lomax and Ennis went from village to town in western Ireland, recording professional and amateur singers and musicians in their homes and community places. The songs are familiar, since so many of them have been learned by more generations via these recordings, and include classics like "I'll Go No More A' Rovin," "Whiskey in the Jar," "The Lark in the Morning," and dozens of others.

Many of the singers represented-like Jeannie Robertson, Séamus Ennis, Jimmy McBeath, Davie Stewart, Bob and Ron Copper-are already well known to those who take their folk song seriously. Tracks I particularly liked were Bogie's Bonnie Belle, sung by Davie Stewart of Dundee, The False Young Man by Frank and Francis McPeake and Shule Aroon by Elizabeth Croonin of Cork.
