Shane Hennessy

Shane Hennessy is virtuoso fingerstyle guitarist and composer hailing from Carlow. His energetic contemporary guitar playing style and his cinematic vivid compositions tie in multiple influences from the various world and ethnic genres. Having caught the eye of guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel as well as super-producer Nile Rodgers of Chic fame, his background in Irish traditional music has created a solid base for the genre-defying musical explorations. Hennessy to date has sold a solo show in The National Concert Hall in Dublin as well as solo tours across Europe and the U.S. To date Hennessy has released two original albums, Zephyrus and 2017 follow up Marrakech as well as working frequently as a songwriter and as a session musician.
