Shane Hennessy is an Irish virtuoso guitarist, songwriter, & composer. Coming from a background in Irish traditional music, Shane has been captivating audiences globally for the past few years, with sell-out solo tours in Europe, Russia, and the United States under his belt, as well as regular appearances at major international music festivals including the prestigious MerleFest.
His most recent album ‘Rain Dance’ has been hailed as “a triumphant reaffirmation of his virtuosity and compositional excellence” by Irish Music Magazine. He has appeared as a guest of Tommy Emmanuel, sold-out a solo concert in Ireland's National Concert Hall, and has worked with Grammy-winner Bill Whelan (composer of Riverdance).
Described by legendary guitarist Tommy Emmanuel as “a brilliant entertainer and an amazing musician who transcends the guitar the same way Muhammed Ali transcended boxing”, Shane has developed an unmistakably unique voice on the guitar, blending his native Irish music with elements of jazz, country, blues, funk, classical, soul, world, and hip-hop, both vocally and instrumentally. His live shows are known for their energy and variety - “anything from Bach to Beyoncé!” Irish Music Magazine have called him “one of the most exciting live performers of his generation”.
