Shannon is a leading six-piece band of virtuoso musicians performing Irish and Celtic music featuring five members from Poland and one from Ireland.

Shannon was formed in 1994 in Olsztyn, Poland, where the band is still based.

Shannon was founded by multi-instrumentalist Marcin Rumiński who has been the band’s guiding musical light over the past two decades. As the name suggests, Shannon look to Ireland for much of their musical inspiration. A major part of the band’s repertoire is Irish, with distinctive arrangements of traditional Irish tunes performed with great musical skill and impact.

Each of the six members is a skilled instrumentalist, moving fluently and easily from traditional Irish music to Scottish and Breton music and elements of wider world music genres.

Shannon’s acoustic sound is ideally suited to seated concert venues, though the band has also performed on the big stage at many large outdoor music festivals throughout Europe.

The band’s deep love and passion for Irish music, and their obvious understanding of the subtleties of the genre, has won them the recognition of lovers of folk and world music in Europe and beyond, as shown by the multitude and variety of festivals where they have performed.
