The wonderful Sharon Shannon, probably one of the world’s most accomplished and respected traditional and contemporary accordion players, is visiting our shores again for this year’s Woodford Folk Festival and has decided to tack on some solo tour dates throughout January. Sharon Shannon was in the country earlier this year for the Port Fairy Folk Festival so we’re pretty excited to have the chance to see her for the second time in less than 12 months.

The full list of dates for Shannon’s tour are below:

Sunday 30th Dec to Tuesday 1st January – Woodford Folk Festival, QLD
Wednesday 2nd January – The Rails, Byron Bay, NSW
Thursday 3rd January – The Rails, Byron Bay, NSW
