Genre-defying star Irish superstar Sharon Shannon is a musician who likes to surprise. While she is best known for her arrangements of traditional Irish tunes and compositions, she has always been eager to explore new musical forms and to meet and work with other musicians. Her Irish influences are cheerfully mixed in with often unexpected styles from around the world in a palette that is expanded even further as she returns with Sacred Earth, her first new studio album in three years.

The button accordion player from County Clare has recorded and toured with Bono, Adam Clayton, Sinead O’Connor, Jackson Browne, Steve Earle, The Waterboys, Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss and Shane MacGowan to name but a few, achieved multi-platinum album sales and topped the charts numerous times her home country.

Amongst Sharon’s biggest successes was the album Galway Girl which went four-times platinum in Ireland with the title track winning her the Meteor Award for most downloaded song two years running, followed in 2009 by a Lifetime Achievement Award.
