Twenty-one years since her debut album, Sharon Shannon continues to reinvent her unique style of traditional music and keeps it relevant and fresh. Playing accordion, whistle and fiddle, the diminutive Clare virtuoso draws on material from her nine studio albums, as well as introducing some brand new compositions and some covers. Sharon’s high-octane brand of trad music is complemented by multi-instrumentalist and singer Alan Connor, who provides a new and highly effective accompaniment with piano, electric guitar and loops. Sparks fly between this pair as the energy and sound created by both together is at once powerful and compelling.
