Hailed as a ‘National Treasure’ by Irish President Michael D Higgins, Sharon Shannon has made the much-maligned accordion ‘cool’ in her home country and achieved legendary status throughout the world. She has recorded over twenty albums and toured with a host of world-class singers and musicians including Bono, Sinead O’Connor, Jackson Browne, John Prine, Steve Earle, The Chieftains, The Waterboys, Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss and Shane MacGowan – a list that is testament to Sharon’s versatility and talent. Renowned for her collaborations across all genres from Irish traditional to reggae, hip-hop, Cajun, country, classical and rap, she returns to the CCI chapel for one night only. An opportunity not to be missed!

“Sharon Shannon defines casual brilliance. She plays accordion with carefree fluidity, virtuosic but not flashy, performing traditional Irish music with a contemporary freshness.” – Boston Globe
