Shane Hennessy is a virtuoso fingerstyle guitarist and composer from Carlow, Ireland. His energetic contemporary guitar playing style and his cinematically vivid compositions tie in multiple influences from various world and ethnic musics. He has caught the attention of big names like guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel and super-producer Nile Rodgers (CHIC). His background in Irish traditional music has created a solid base for his genre-defying musical explorations. Achievements to date include a sold-out solo show in The National Concert Hall in Dublin, a commission with Bill Whelan of Riverdance fame, and a billing at the prestigious MerleFest in Wilkesboro, North Carolina, a feature on the St Patrick’s Day mainstage in Dublin, solo tours of Europe, the US, and Russia, and an appearance at the prestigious Music City Irish Fest in Nashville, Tennessee. He has released two albums of original music to date; ‘Zephyrus’ (2015) and ‘Marrakech’ (2017), and works frequently as a songwriter in Nashville, Tennessee.
