Celtic Icon Sharon Shannon To Play Cardiff

CELTIC folk icon Sharon Shannon airs stunning new tracks from her latest album Sacred Earth at St David’s Hall on Wednesday 18 May. 

Sharon is best known for her arrangements of traditional Irish tunes and compositions, she’s always been eager to explore new styles and collaborate with other musicians. Her Irish influences are cheerfully mixed in with often unexpected styles from around the world including – for the first time – Africa.

The button accordion player from County Clare, has recorded and toured with Bono and Adam Clayton of U2, Sinead O’Connor, Jackson Browne, John Prine, Steve Earle, The Chieftains, The Waterboys, Willie Nelson, Nigel Kennedy, Alison Krauss and Shane MacGowan.
