About Liam Lawton

In the course of his career, Liam Lawton has gone from promising young composer, to Catholic priest, to reputed liturgical composer, to world music giant. Lawton took a special interest in traditional Irish music early on, second only to his love of composition. Ordained in 1984, Lawton served as a parish priest in Carlow, a small town south of Dublin. Some seven years later opportunities arose to perform, and Lawton was quickly rediscovered by the liturgical music community. Beginning in 2000 Lawton's name was not only associated with quality liturgical music, but Irish culture at large. ~ Evan C. Gutierrez
