Seán McAusland


Seán was taught to play electric guitar at school, then went on to learn piano and keyboards, and later taught himself to play accordion in a folk rock band. Over the last ten years, he has played in a variety of acts that have taken him all over the UK, around Europe, onboard cruise ships and even over to the world-famous QE2 in Dubai with a 60s tribute act. His most recent role has been as lead guitarist Peter Buck in a top UK R.E.M. tribute band.

He first started playing professionally as keyboard player for a Beatles tribute show, and most recently performed at Liverpool’s Cavern Club with the resident Beatles tribute band. As well as the Beatles, his biggest musical influences from the era include other British rock groups such as The Zombies and The Kinks, and American vocal groups like The Beach Boys, Simon & Garfunkel and The Everly Brothers.

As a keyboardist, Seán prides himself with a great attention to detail, enabling him to recreate the additional textures found in songs as accurately as possible. He cites Nicky Hopkins, Billy Preston and Ray Charles as piano heroes.
