The Sharon Shannon Quartet
Sharon Shannon is a musician who likes to surprise. While best 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 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.
Sharon’s latest studio album, The Reckoning, was released in November 2020. The album was composed, written and recorded in its entirety during lockdown, featuring over a dozen remote collaborations from locations across the globe. Sharon is pulling out all the stops this year with her most innovative and original album to date. All the tracks on the album are newly composed original tunes and songs which are co-written by Sharon and band members and various guest collaborators.
