Irish President Michael D Higgins called her ‘A National Treasure’ and after 20 of her own albums, countless DVDS, filmed concerts, musical collaborations and a career that has spanned 40 years, Sharon Shannon in 2023 is still breaking new musical ground.

Her career has seen her tour the world through America, Europe, Africa, Australia, New Zealand even to Saudi Arabia and China and she has recorded and toured with artistes as diverse as Bono, Willie Nelson, La Bottine Souriante, Shane Mc Gowan, Nigel Kennedy, Steve Earle, Justin Adams, Johnny Depp, Linton Kwesi Johnston, The Waterboys and Dessie O Halloran, and the RTE Symphony Orchestra to mention just a few.

Playing shows throughout her career from The Kennedy Centre in Washington to London’s Wembley Arena, Sharon continues to redefine and reimagine the boundaries of Irish traditional music, mixing with genres as different from each other as reggae and classical.
