We are delighted to welcome the legendary Irish singer and musician Sharon Shannon to the Town Hall. Known for her work with the button accordion, her fiddle technique, and tin whistle and melodeon playing, Sharon’s self-titled 1991 debut album is the best-selling album of traditional Irish music ever released in Ireland.
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 ground, refining and reimagining the boundaries of Irish music.
Sharon recently created and presented a 4 part musical TV series called Heartlands which saw her travel the length of her ancient namesake, the mighty River Shannon, making music along its course. 2023 will see Sharon releasing new music, creating new live music shows that continue to surprise and excite.
Tickets £22 available at Masham Community Office, 01765-680200.
