Shane Hennessy is a guitarist and composer whose unique guitar playing style has amazed audiences all over the world. His guitar playing style and compositions have caught the attention of big names such as Tommy Emmanuel and Nile Rodgers (CHIC). His style of music is difficult to explain in words - he calls it simply "fingerstyle" guitar. Shane’s style encompasses virtually every genre of music, tied together with unique energetic fingerpicking and flatpicking styles. In his repertoire, Shane touches on everything from jazz and classical pieces to blues and bluegrass, with Irish traditional, jazz manouche, progres-sive, and world influences thrown in the mix, as well as periodic bursts of energetic improvisation, and arrangements of well-known songs.
He cites musicians such as Clive Carroll, James Taylor, Chris Thile, and Mark Knopfler - as well as Tommy Emmanuel and Nile Rodgers - as his biggest influences. Shane's debut album ‘Zephyrus’ was released in June 2015 to rave reviews, and an accompanying European tour saw Shane touring extensively. Shane’s sophomore album ‘Marrakech’ was released worldwide in the summer of 2017, accompanied by a tour of Eu-rope, North America, Australia, and the UK/Ireland.
