Sharon Shannon is a true musical visionary who can mix, blend and sample different styles. She is passionate about sharing her energy and love of playing music with others. Her musical journey started in her home county of Clare playing Céilí music and with the local Comhaltas group.
Thanks to talent, dedication and thousands of hours of practice she has played at some of the best concert venues on the planet and has performed with icons such as Steve Earle, Kirsty MacColl, Mike Scott, Mundy and Sinead O’Connor to name but a few.
Sharon is delighted that our platform is a positive space for young people to be creativity noting how social media and the internet, “Far too often consumes the idealism and natural enthusiasm that young people enjoy”.
This famed musician is known for her creativity and energy. A number of the Inspiring You team were delighted to be part of her Galway Girl video filmed by Kamil Films in June 2016 with 15,000 people!
Having met with Sharon we devised the #InspiringTuneChallenge. The idea is simple. Watch Sharon’s #InspiringTuneChallenge and if you wish you can learn it yourself or add whatever “style” you like to the tune.
What can you do for #InspiringTuneChallenge?
We want children to be creative and reflective. You can record or film you or your groups version of Sharon’s tune.
