Fresh from releasing her brand new album, Now, Ireland’s greatest traditional music export Sharon Shannon will headline the closing night of the Galway Folk Festival on Sunday, June 9th at 7pm. Following the success of her song ‘The Diddley Doo’ in collaboration with The Scratch band, which she recently performed live on the Late Late Show, Sharon is back with a host of freewheeling songs full of stomping tunes and heart-warming, emotional and poignant ballads. With a career spanning 40 years, Sharon continues to break new musical ground. Hailed as a national treasure by President Michael D Higgins, she continues to redefine the boundaries of Irish traditional music, elevating the genre through her collaborations with reggae, rap and classical musicians.
