Sharon Shannon in Concert

September 10, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Sharon Shannon

The amazing Sharon Shannon is coming to St. Paul! While she is known for her arrangements of traditional Irish tunes and Irish-influenced compositions, she has always been eager to explore new styles, and to meet and work with other musicians. The accordionist from Ireland has achieved legendary status throughout the world and has made the much-maligned accordion ‘cool’ in her home country.

Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door.  Online tickets will be available until 4 pm on the day of the show unless they sell out first.  If tickets are still available on Sept 10, they may be purchased at the door. If the weather is comfortable, this concert will be outdoors, if not, the show will be inside the Celtic Junction. Youth 18 years and under receive free admission!

While crossing over into many genres of music, Sharon’s style is uniquely traditional Irish and she has been hugely influential in promoting Irish music not only in her own country but in the USA where she has collaborated with John Prine and Steve Earle/ Canada with Natalie McMaster/ Japan with the Kodo Drummers/ Malawi with Umoza Children of Mzuzu and most recently recording and touring with Seckou Keita, Kora and percussion master from Senegal.

Sharon has recorded and toured with a who’s who of the Irish and Global Music Industry, including The Waterboys, Jackson Browne, The RTÉ Concert Orchestra, The Chieftains, Shane McGowan, Willie Nelson, Nigel Kennedy, Kirsty MacColl, Bono, Adam Clayton, Sinéad O’Connor, Imelda May and- a list that is testament to Sharon’s versatility as well as talent.

A prolific composer, Sharon continues to defy genres and her 10 studio albums are a testament to a fearless adventuring spirit when it comes to making music. In 2018 she recorded a traditional Irish music album with Irish rugby star Robbie Henshaw and the Henshaw family and friends. Her last studio album was Sacred Earth 2017 and she released a double live album Live in Minneapolis in early 2019.
