David Munnelly and Shane McGowan
Join Shane McGowan and David Munnelly as they take to the stage at the Linenhall Arts Centre with their unique approach to traditional music featuring well known traditional repertoire alongside new compositions.
Shane comes from an area in south Sligo known as Lavagh. Growing up in a musical family, he started playing whistle and flute at an early age, giving his first public performance at the age of five. He started playing guitar in his teens playing Irish music as well as rock, swing and jazz.
David from Belmullet, Co. Mayo, is known for his colourful style, which features bold bass fingerings, complex arrangements and modern compositions. His music has hints of the Roaring 20s and the energy of a box of dynamite coupled with a masterful knack for letting a tune take its own time for a completely unmistakable and brilliant sound. Shane and David have been playing music together for nearly twenty years.
