Sharon Shannon (IRL)
Ireland has many musical feathers in her hat, and Sharon Shannon is one of the musicians who bear the international reputation of the Irish music tradition high. Born in 1968, Sharon Shannon, an acclaimed accordionist and violinist, began performing in public at an early age. Her accordion work up through the 80s led to her joining The Waterboys in 1989, and in 1991 she released her solo album Sharon Shannon. This album became the best selling record of traditional Irish music ever released in Ireland. Her latest album is The Reckoning from 2020.
