Irish musician Sharon Shannon will play a hotly anticipated concert at An Lanntair, Stornoway on October 22nd at 8pm.

The concert comes in promotion of the Sharon’s latest live record, with Sharon joined on the record and DVD combo by Dublin multi-instrumentalist Alan Connor.

The duo produces no small acoustic sound. Connor, whose background is firmly in rock and blues, is equally proficient on piano and electric guitar. He also plays stomp, which creates a driving groove, creating a big, brash sound.

Sharon’s music has been featured in several Hollywood movies, including ‘PS I Love You’, and an award-winning Bulmers TV commercial campaign.

Whilst she tours the country, Sharon is also working on an autobiography, having won a life-time achievement award at the 2009 Meteor Awards.

She is a passionate animal lover and does a lot of voluntary work and fundraising for various animal rescues charities and worthwhile causes. Sharon has recently become an ambassador for Building Of Hope, a charity helping educate young people in developing nations.

Attendees at the An Lanntair concert can expect to hear a unique twist of classical and accessible music.
