Singer, Eleanor Shanley, and guitarist, John Feeley, first met in London in the 1990s, when Eleanor was touring with De Dannan. They did not meet again for nearly twenty-five years, when John was doing a show in Eleanor’s now hometown of Ballinasloe. They have since worked on a number of live shows together and recently recorded and released the album, Cancion de Amor, which was recorded in St. Francis Church, Meelick Friary.
With a career spanning over twenty years, Eleanor Shanley has performed as a soloist, as a member of De Danann, and in a series of collaborations with the late Ronnie Drew, Sharon Shannon Mike Hanrahan, Dolores Keane and many more.
John Feeley is highly regarded for his performance and recordings of new works by Irish composers, and has had many works written for him. He has been described by The Washington Post as ‘Ireland’s leading classical guitarist’ and by Michael Dervan in The Irish Times as ‘a trailblazer…when it comes to the guitar and guitar-playing in Ireland’.
