Sharon Shannon

Sharon Shannon is at the head of a list of Irish musicians spearheading a broadening of the traditional music horizons. Thoroughly versed in Irish music, she has not been afraid to mix her playing on accordion and fiddle (she's a double threat) with all manner of different styles -- from reggae to country. Growing up in North County Clare, long a hotbed of traditional music, she was encouraged by local music teacher Frank Custy -- her siblings Garry and Mary both played, too. By the time she was eight, Shannon was already performing in local group Disirt Tola, who released an album in 1984.

Just recently Sharon undertook a very successful Irish Tour with a Big Band including special guests Dessie O'Halloran, Mundy and Jon Kenny. The audience response was incredible and the show received standing ovations everywhere and included a rousing set on the main stage at the Oxegen Festival. Shannon released a compilation in 2008 called Galway Girl: The Best of Sharon Shannon, followed in 2010 by Saints & Scoundrels, an all-new studio collection of genre-bending tunes with an eclectic cast of collaborators including Shane MacGowan, Imelda May, Jerry Fish, Carol Keogh, Justin Adams, the Cartoon Thieves, and the Waterboys
