National Concert Hall Presents Sharon Shannon Live Showcasing her New Album and More for St. Patrick’s Weekend

Sharon Shannon is one of Ireland’s most-accomplished traditional Irish musicians. Since the release of her best-selling debut album ‘Sharon Shannon’ in 1991 Sharon’s music – whether traditional arrangements, Irish-influenced compositions or explorations of genres such as Hip-Hop, Classical, Country and Reggae – has brought her an ever-growing global audience of loyal fans.

Sharon’s latest studio album, The Reckoning was composed, written and recorded in its entirety during lockdown, featuring over a dozen remote collaborations from locations across the globe in her most innovative and original album to date. Guests on the album include Donal Lunny, reggae legend Dennis Bovell, Jamaican-born dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson and rising Irish star Susan O’Neill.

Over the course of her career Sharon has recorded and toured with world-renowned musicians such as 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.

She has entertained US Presidents, Bill Clinton at the White House and Barrack Obama in Dublin, and Irish Presidents Mary Robinson and Mary MacAleese on presidential visits to Poland and Australia respectively. She recently accompanied Irish president Michael D. Higgins on his official tour of China.

For this special St. Patrick’s weekend performance Sharon is joined by a stellar cast of musicians including Irish-Zimbabwean singer Lucia Evans, fellow former Waterboy Trevor Hutchinson on double bass, Niall Murphy on fiddle, Alan Connor on piano/guitar, drummer Steve Hogan, Luke Dunford on Hammond, Jack Maher on electric guitar/vocals and Jim Murray on acoustic guitar.
