Shane Hennessy is a virtuoso fingerstyle guitarist and composer from Carlow, Ireland. His energetic contemporary guitar playing style and his cinematically vivid compositions tie in multiple influences from various world and ethnic musics. He has caught the attention of big names like guitar legend Tommy Emmanuel and super-producer Nile Rodgers (CHIC). His background in Irish traditional music has created a solid base for his genre-defying musical explorations. Achievements to date include a sold-out solo show in The National Concert Hall in Dublin, a commission with Bill Whelan of Riverdance fame, and a billing at the prestigious MerleFest in Wilkesboro, North Carolina. He has also featured on the St Patrick’s Day mainstage in Dublin, held solo tours of Europe, the US, and Russia, and appears as Irish festivals and music festivals around the world. He has released two albums of original music to date, and works frequently as a songwriter and composer.
Renowned for their incendiary performances, Niamh Farrell and her band HamsandwicH have established themselves as one of Ireland’s most enthralling live acts. Featuring the signature calling card of Niamh’s powerful yet sweet vocal, their music has been described by Irish Times’ writer Tony Clayton-Lea as “a masterclass in quality indie pop.”
Having sold out the prestigious Olympia Theatre three times, released a number 1 album and shared stages with Arcade Fire, The Pixies, Bon Jovi and Mumford & Sons, Niamh has had a very busy few years. We are so lucky to have her perform an exclusive set of Carpenters songs for Skylarks at Lost Lane – a performance you won’t want to miss!
Amy Dillon is an Irish songbird from Co. Kildare. Creating an uplifting, atmospheric experience through voice and lyrics, Amy blends smooth piano melodies with raw lyrics that weave through all matters of the heart.
Having gained recognition for harnessing a soulful voice merged with an ethereal vulnerability that connects and captivates the audience to a mesmerised hush, Amy casts a spell upon listeners through heartfelt memoirs of love, joy and all matters of human emotion.
The Kildare songstress is currently working on her first EP, finding influences from bands such as London Grammer and Daughter.
Sive is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who was recently dubbed ‘one of the most inspiring and exciting artists of our time’ by Female First UK. Combining haunting vocals with delicately woven musicality and an undeniable charm, Sive carves a compelling style of alt-folk that is not afraid to differentiate from the norm. In recent years Sive has toured extensively in Ireland and beyond, sharing stages with the likes of Lisa Hannigan, Kila and Cathy Davey, and winning a much-coveted slot on RTE’S Other Voices along the way. Having released two albums independently, she began working with Berlin-based label Veta Records in 2018. Her new self-titled EP was released to critical acclaim in May 2019.
