Guitar Virtuoso to play Naas's Town House

Shane Hennessey

The Town House Hotel, Naas will host, on May 11 a concert by Shane Hennessy, a 23 year old guitarist and composer from Carlow.

Despite his tender years, Shane’s unique guitar playing style has amazed audiences all over the world.

His guitar playing style and compositions have caught the attention of big names like guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel and super-producer Nile Rodgers. He also works as a songwriter, and is an in-demand session musician.

At the young age of twenty-three, Shane has already featured in some of the most well-known venues in Ireland, and has been a featured performer in some of Ireland's biggest music and arts festivals, including Electric Picnic (2012, 2013, and 2014), Longitude (2014), and The Guitar Festival of Ireland (Headline Act, 2016).

Concert begins at 8.30pm. Tickets are €15 and are available from the Hotel, Jam Music in Naas or  online at www.ticketstop.ie.
