Shane Hennessy is a virtuoso guitarist, composer, and songwriter from Ireland.

At the young age of twenty-five, Shane has sold out a solo concert in the National Concert Hall (John Field Room), released two highly praised albums, Zephyrus (2015), and Marrakech (2017), has worked with Bill Whelan (composer of Riverdance) and has done extensive international touring across Europe, The United States, and Russia.

Russian fans can catch Shane all over Russia in May, and radio listeners worldwide will hear Shane on the WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour. Shane also plans to release his third studio album in June.
