Legendary accordionist Sharon Shannon has achieved remarkable status throughout the world as one of the foremost talents in accordion playing.
Renowned for her unique and versatile style of playing, Sharon has collaborated with some of the biggest names in music today including Sinead O’Connor, Steve Earle, The Chieftains, The Waterboys, Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss and Shane MacGowan.
Sharon releases an album of original tunes written for and recorded with the RTE Concert Orchestra in November 2013.
She gets a strong, almost "vocal" tone from her accordions; her instrumental technique is remarkable, yet looks effortless; and her smile could light up a small fishing village by itself.
