LATE SHOW HAS 1 TICKET LEFT. EARLY SHOW HAS SOME AVAILABILITY BUT SNAP THEM UP NOW.
The Burren Backroom has been a special place for Sharon Shannon and her musicians over the years. Well, adding on two special-and surprise - shows to a quick U.S. visit is her way of saying to her fans here, you are important.
I would GRAB these tickets if I was you. Only two shows with a max capacity of 100 each. They will be sold out in a flash.
Sharon has a new CD coming out in May and its a beauty featuring the core of this band, and some great guest artists. Jim Murray will be with her again and they will be joined by Sean Regan. Jack Maher will be there on electric guitar. Jack has performed with Van Morrison, Mundy, Eddi Reader and many others.
Sharon Shannon burst on the scene in Ireland in the early 1990s. Her amazing ability on the accordion combined with an exuberant personality and a constant smile, attracted people immediately to the wonderful music she grew up with.
Just look a the energy she exudes while staying totally connected to the tradition....
In subsequent years, she has become as much of an ambassador of the music and as much of an icon, as the Chieftains.
Sharon Shannon usually plays big festivals, and large theaters here in the Boston area. So, imagine what this was like the last time she played here. Limited to 100 tickets per show, it will be a unique intimate experience, up-close and personal, with one of the great exponents of traditional Irish music. I would advise you get your tickets immediately.
The Burren Backroom series is now well established as one of the most sought-after boutique series of trad presentation in the world. It has already created already dozens of memorable, intimate, informal presentations held in a truly atmospheric space which was founded by well-known traditional musicians Tommy McCarthy and Louise Costello in Davis Square, Somerville, Massachusetts.
Hosted by Brian O'Donovan of A Celtic Sojourn on WGBH radio, these gatherings feature core performers from many aspects of traditional music as well as special guests, and conversations around the music. As is the custom of the Burren, it is anticipated informal and dynamic post concert sessions will be a feature.
