The Sharon Shannon Quartet

Time:8pm
Venue:J2 (seated show)
Price:£25 adv

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. 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 musical genres, Hip-Hop, Cajun, Country, Reggae, Classical and Rap.

Sharon has recorded and toured with a who's who of the Irish and Global Music Industry, including Bono, Adam Clayton, Sinead O’Connor, Jackson Browne, John Prine, Steve Earle, The RTE Concert Orchestra, The Chieftains, The Waterboys, Willie Nelson, Nigel Kennedy, Alison Krauss and Shane MacGowan - a list that is testament to Sharon's versatility as well as talent.

In recent months, Sharon has expanded her work beyond her music, recording and uploading Podcasts regularly to her Patreon page to offer fans a deeper understanding of her music. In conjunction with the NUIG Music Department, Sharon will also be filming the first in a series of Master Classes, to be filmed in December and used as part of the NUIG Music Degree. These will be made available online with new lessons uploaded on an ongoing basis.
