Sharon Shannon and The Big Band – Live at Dolans 2CD




In 2006, Sharon Shannon with the Big Band (and special guests) toured Ireland to sold out houses and standing ovations, including a rousing set on the main stage at that years Oxegen Festival. Audiences everywhere were asking if a live CD was available and Sharon’s website was hit with an unprecedented number of requests for any available documentation of her fantastic live show. So over two nights in July at Dolans Warehouse in Limerick, Sharon and the band recorded material for this 2 CD set. As well as the band (supplemented by banjo virtuosos Gerry O’Connor and Mary Shannon with Winnie Horan from Solas on fiddle), Sharon invited along a whole cast of guests, composed of established Irish talent as well as up-and-coming new artists. Included on this amazing guest list are Damien Dempsey, Declan O’Rourke, Dessie O’Halloran, Jon Kenny, Mundy, Roesy, Jack Maher and The Brennan Sisters. The band also features Robbie Casserly, Paul Moore, James Delaney, Jim Murray and Richie Buckley. The result is the ultimate “session”, set in a small club in which band, guests and audience combine to create a great party atmosphere. Sharon blends elements of traditional, world music, roots reggae, bluegrass and country with blues, soul and gospel in a very unique, high octane approach which will appeal to fans of all genres and this incredible show not only reinforces Sharon’s talent as a top Irish star but showcases her ability as a producer and arranger.
