A MUSICIAN known for her arrangements of traditional Irish melodies and Irish-influenced compositions heads to Kendal.

The Sharon Shannon Quartet will take the stage at the Brewery Arts Center on February 3.

Sharon Shannon has always been eager to explore new styles, meet and work with other musicians. The Irish accordionist achieved legendary status around the world and made the much-maligned accordion “cool” in his home country. She also boasts of having entertained the presidents of many countries, including US presidents at the White House and President Obama in Dublin.

While crossing many genres of music, Sharon’s style is uniquely traditional Irish and she has been hugely influential in promoting Irish music not only in her own country but around the world.

She had multi-platinum album sales and had several number ones, with her album Galway Girl going four times platinum in Ireland, and the title track winning her the Meteor Award two years in a row for most downloaded song. In recognition of her enormous contribution to Irish music and culture, Sharon was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Music by NUI Galway in October 2018.

Tickets for this event are £20.50 or £22.50 at the door.
