BERLIN CALLING! Piranha Picks of the Week - Galway Girl


Sharon Shannon – Donnerstag @ Quasimodo, see below

Thursday 25 OCTOBER

After her first claim to fame with the Waterboys, Sharon Shannon recorded the best-selling album of traditional Irish Music ever with her solo debut "Sharon Shannon" and in 2000 became the official "Galway Girl" – sort of – when she recorded Steve Earle's song of the same name with him. More than all that - of course there's no topping her on the accordion, neither when it comes to virtuosity nor when we're talking about emotional depth
