The Crescent is delighted to announce the fourth edition of the Belfast Guitar Night as we welcome to the stage the talented Shane Hennessy.
Shane is a virtuoso fingerstyle guitarist and composer from Carlow, Ireland.
His energetic contemporary guitar playing style and his cinematically vivid compositions tie in multiple influences from various world and ethnic musics. He has caught the attention of big names like guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel and super-producer Nile Rodgers (CHIC).
His background in Irish traditional music has created a solid base for his genre-defying musical explorations. Achievements to date include a sold-out solo show in The National Concert Hall in Dublin, a headline billing at the Guitar Festival of Ireland, a feature on the St Patrick’s Day mainstage in Dublin, solo tours of Europe, the US, and Russia, and an appearance at the prestigious Music City Irish Fest in Nashville, Tennessee.
He has released two albums of original music to date; ‘Zephyrus’ (2015) and ‘Marrakech’ (2017), and works frequently as a songwriter and as a session musician.
We are delighted to welcome Shane to The Crescent, so why not join us for this BYO music event.
