Sharon Shannon has music at her fingertips….literally!

The accordionist has achieved legendary status throughout the world and has made the much-maligned accordion 'cool' in her home country.  She is also renowned for her collaborations, not just in Irish traditional music, but through all musical genres – Hip-Hop, Cajun, Country, 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, Steve Earle, The Chieftains, The Waterboys, Willie Nelson, Nigel Kennedy, Alisson Krauss and Shane MacGowan.

Sharon has entertained former US President Bill Clinton and Irish Presidents Robinson and MacAleese and more recently President Obama during his Dublin visit .

She has won several music awards and was awarded a Lifetime Achievement at the Irish Meteor Awards in 2009.

The genre-defying star has had multi-platinum album sales and has had several number one albums, singles and DVDs in her home country including Diamond Mountain Sessions, Live at Dolans and the phenomenal Steve Earle penned The Galway Girl with Irish rock singer Mundy.
