Virtuoso fingerstyle guitarist and composer Shane Hennessy amazes audiences worldwide with his unique approach to the acoustic guitar. Tying together his background as a traditional Irish musician with influences from both the many disciplines of guitar, and his innate passion for disparate ethnic styles, Hennessy’s live performances are known for their energy, humour, and virtuosity. In 2019 his world tour brought him to the USA, Europe, Russia, and Australia, highlights being headline billings at both the MerleFest music festival and the Milwaukee Irish Fest. He has worked with Riverdance composer Bill Whelan, toured with legendary guitarist Tommy Emmanuel, and been praised by Nile Rodgers (CHIC) for his fresh and innovative style. RTÉ presenter Marty Whelan wrote of Shane: “There is part of me that didn’t really believe that he could do what he does on one guitar until he came into the studio, sat down in front of me, and played it. He is amazing – what a talent!”
