Event Details

As part of the SOLO series of performances, curated by SJ McArdle, the Cork-based family trio, Greenshine, will appear with local singer-songwriter, Seán Mathews.

Greenshine comprises Noel Shine, Mary Greene and their daughter Ellie. Their repertoire is drawn from contemporary, folk and roots music and includes many self-penned songs. Their fast picking and close harmonies are a treat to the ear.

Noel is a multi-instrumentalist – playing guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, bouzouki and traditional whistle and this musical dexterity had seen him much in demand as a session and band player by artists including The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem. Mary plays rhythm guitar and vocals and has previously featured on albums by Christy Moore, John Spillane, Mick Hanly and Frances Black. Daughter, Ellie, grew up surrounded by music and has been performing in concerts and festivals since the age of 13. In 2013 Ellie joined the band officially and Greenshine was born.

The event – which is being presented under the Local Live Performance Scheme of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, etc – is free but booking essential at https://droicheadartscentre.ticketsolve.com/shows/873634176.
