Steafán Hanvey is a singer-songwriter from Northern Ireland who was born during one of the bloodiest years of “The Troubles.” Growing up in an artistic and unconventional household – his father, Bobbie Hanvey, is an acclaimed photographer and both of his parents were traditional Irish musicians – Steafán’s exposure to all kinds of music began in utero. Citing influences from Simon and Garfunkel to Liam Clancy, perhaps the most important of all was the home itself, where the young Steafán was often called upon to perform a tune or two.
His father, Bobbie Hanvey is an award-winning photographer and has been published in Paris Vogue, The Village Voice, The Melbourne Age, NPR and The Irish Times and his photographs are archived at the Burns Library, Boston College, Mass. He has also presented his own radio show under the moniker “The Rambling Man” for the last 36 years.
