Overview

Sharon Shannon Band, with special guest Susan O’Neill in a Double Bill Concert. 

Sharon Shannon is a name synonymous with and entrenched in the culture and fabric of Traditional Irish Music. Sharon’s journey with her accordion and love for music has led her to become one of the world’s most highly acclaimed traditional musicians, and her personality has led her to be one of Ireland’s most well-liked and popular national treasures.

From her debut self-titled album in 1991 to her most recent “Sacred Earth” album, her work demonstrates a wide-ranging number of musical influences. Sharon Shannon is a musician who likes to surprise. While she is known for her arrangements of traditional Irish tunes and Irish-influenced compositions, she has always been eager to explore new styles, and to meet and work with other musicians. Her work demonstrates a groundbreaking mix of traditional Irish with reggae, country, Native American, bluegrass, cajun, rap, dance, French Canadian and African.

The prodigously gifted Susan O’Neill is aso from County Clare, Ireland. Her soulful & husky-voiced performances are truly something to behold. Using guitar, harmonica, trumpet and a loop pedal, Susan delivers a timeless and powerful blend of the old and new. Her inspirational fusion of soulful Irish folk and her own acclaimed original material makes for an entertaining and enchanting musical experience.

Her solo performances are literally mind-blowing. The amazing range of her gritty vocal combined with her superb guitar technique, her loop pedals and trumpet, make for a truly unforgettable musical experience.

Don't miss this very rare oppportunity to hear two incredible artists in concert together.
