Sharon Shannon Trio

October 4, 2022 @ October 4, 2022


• Sharon Shannon first came to our attention when she toured the world for 18 months as a member of The Waterboys.
• Her 1991 debut studio album was the best selling traditional Irish music albums of all time.
• A cover version of the song “Galway Girl” by Sharon Shannon and Mundy reached number one and became the most downloaded song of 2008 in Ireland. {Sharon recorded the original with Steve Earle.]

Sharon is a musician who continues 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. The accordionist from Ireland has achieved legendary status throughout the world and has made the much-maligned accordion ‘cool’ in her home country. Renowned for her collaborations, not just in Irish traditional music, but through all music genres, Hip Hop, Cajun, Country, Classical and Rap.

She has recorded and toured with some of the biggest names in the world’s music industry, including Bono, Sinead O’Connor, The Chieftains, The Waterboys, Willie Nelson, Jackson Browne, Alison Krauss, Steve Earle; etc.
