DHP and Band on the Wall are delighted to present one of the most exciting and adventurous musical spirits to emerge from Ireland in the past twenty years.

Revered as one of the great innovators, accordion virtuoso Sharon Shannon has recorded, toured and performed alongside artists including Sinead O’Connor, Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, Steve Earle, Nigel Kennedy, Bono, Adam Clayton, Jackson Browne, Mark Knopfler, The Chieftains, The Waterboys and Shane MacGowan –  a list that is testament to Sharon’s versatility as well as talent. As well as the accordion, she is also an accomplished fiddle and whistle player and performs at Band on the Wall with her internationally-acclaimed band.

Her album The Galway Girl went 4 times platinum in Ireland and the title track won the Meteor Award for the most downloaded song for the last two years. In 2010 she was honoured as their youngest ever winner of the Meteor Lifetime Achivement Award. Come join us at Band on the Wall for what promises to be a magical night in the company of one of Irish folk music’s most loved stars.

Support comes from Eleanor McEvoy.

This concert will begin at 8pm but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open for delicious food and drinks from 5.30pm.
