Dean Crowe Sessions
Sunday 27th November
Doors 7pm | Gig 8pm | Free Admission
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 Billie Eilish – 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, drawing comparisons to virtuosos Chris Thile and Tommy Emmanuel.
Shane has sold out a solo concert in the National Concert Hall in Dublin, released four highly-praised albums, Zephyrus (2015), Marrakech (2017), Rain Dance (2020), and Idircheol (2020), has worked with Bill Whelan and has done extensive international touring across Europe, The United States, and Russia, including performances at MerleFest, Milwaukee Irish Fest, MusikMesse Festival, and many more.
‘Rain Dance’, Shane’s third studio album, was released in 2020.
