GUITAR VIRTUOSO, SONGWRITER, & COMPOSER
Irish virtuoso guitarist Shane Hennessy has established himself as one of the leading guitarists on the world stage, known widely for his fingerstyle, flatpicking, and percussive guitar-playing approaches.
His energetic live performances and his cinematically-vivid compositions tie in influences from Bach to Beyoncé – and everything in between! With a unique style of solo guitar playing that encompasses the range of a whole band – covering drums, bass, rhythm and lead lines – Shane builds a complete sonic world entirely on his own.
Shane has sold out a solo concert in the National Concert Hall in Dublin, released two highly praised albums, Zephyrus (2015), and Marrakech (2017), has worked with Bill Whelan (composer of Riverdance) and has done extensive international touring across Europe, Russia and the USA, including a performance at the prestigious MerleFest, and numerous appearances on the Irish & Celtic Festival circuit in the USA (Milwaukee Fest, Kansas City Fest, & many more)
