SHARON SHANNON & Her Band
Please note “Due to a close family bereavement, Seckou Keita will not be performing with Sharon Shannon in Exeter on 9th May and Frome on 10th May. We offer our sincere apologies for any disappointment caused. “
It’s a great privilege to welcome Sharon Shannon, the legendary accordion, fiddle, melodion and tin
whistle player together with her incredible band on their first ever visit to the venue.
Her self titled 1991 debut album was the biggest-ever selling album of traditional music in her native Ireland.
A former member of The Waterboys she also toured with Nigel Kennedy performing his much heralded “Jimi Hendrix Suite” and has also collaborated with such luminaries as Jackson Browne, Kirsty Macoll, Christy Moore, Mundy, Sinead O’Connor, John Prine & Belinda Carlisle.
Her 2000 album “The Diamond Mountain Sessions” went triple platinum, spawning “Galway Girl” featuring Steve Earle which also appeared on his “Transcendal Blues” album.
