Eleanor Shanley in Concert

With a career spanning over twenty years, Eleanor Shanley is one of our most loved singers in our country’s folk music history. Whether as a soloist, or collaborating with De Dannan, or her time collaborating with the late Ronnie Drew (rip), that voice rings threw with such lyrical emotion.  Everytime.  Eleanor still possesses a voice as pure and lyrical as the first day she stepped in front of a microphone with De Danann in 1990.  Renowned for her unique interpretation of Irish and Roots songs, Eleanor Shanley has been at the top of her profession since her first appearance with De Danann.  She recorded two critically acclaimed albums with them ‘A Jacket of Batteries’ and ‘Half Set in Harlem’.   Eleanor has worked with many great musicians through the years and also recorded with The Dubliners, Sharon Shannon, Donal Lunny, to U2 and many more. Eleanor’s happiest place is performing and to frequently have an opportunity to perform with friends too makes the experience even more special. This year so far, has included live shows in Denmark, where Eleanor was awarded The Danish Folk Music Award in 2015, a testament were it needed to her popularity in this market.  She is only the second Irish artist to receive this honour since its inception 20 years ago.  

Eleanor comes to The Ramor Theatre as part of her 2018 tour, when she even plans to also record her new album!
