Shane Hennessy Live at Artisan Guitars March 16th
Maton Guitars Nashville is proud to present an intimate performance & social media livestream with virtuoso guitarist and composer Shane Hennessy.
Hailing from the Emerald Isle(Ireland), Shane's unique approach to the acoustic guitar has amazed audiences all over the world. His playing style and compositions have caught the attention of big names like guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel, with whom he has shared the stage, and super-producer Nile Rodgers (CHIC). He also works as a songwriter, and is an in-demand session musician.
At the young age of twenty-four, Shane has been a featured performer in some of Ireland's biggest music and arts festivals, including Culture Night at Dublin Castle (2017), Electric Picnic (2014 and 2017), Longitude (2014), Body & Soul (2018) and The Guitar Festival of Ireland (Headline Act, 2016). Shane has also been a headline act at MusikMesse (Frankfurt, Germany), and has toured widely in the UK and Europe, the USA, and Russia.
2017 saw Shane headlining his first solo concert in the National Concert Hall in Dublin, Ireland, in support of his sophomore release 'Marrakech'. A worldwide tour saw stops in The United Kingdom, Germany, France, The Netherlands, and the United States of America. 2018 brings Shane to more countries, festivals, and collaborations than ever before, including two special appearances in Nashville, Tennessee: The Chet Atkins Convention in Nashville, and Music City Irish Festival 2018. In October 2018, Shane will be working on an ensemble project with an eminent composer and some of Ireland's most advanced musicians, as well as beginning work on a third studio album.
Shane plays maton guitars exclusively and has even had Andy Allen, from the Maton Custom Shop, build him a model to take on the road. Hear Shane talk about his Maton in the video below!
