Doctor MillarSeán AKA Doctor Millar, while critically acclaimed, remains one of Ireland’s best-kept musical secrets. He’s an eminent singer-songwriter with a career spanning decades. A founding member of The Cute Hoors, he has released several highly regarded records and composed hit shows for theatre.

Hot Press named him Ireland’s best singer/song-writer and an Irish Times journalist described Sean’s lyrical works “the best collection of short stories I have never read”.
