Folk ‘n Roll, combines irish traditional music, covers, irish folk, and original songs written by The Shannons.

“Folk ‘n Roll” is a catchphrase coined by The Shannons as far back as 2010 to describe our unique brand of music, sung not only with feeling when required but also with a swing to get your heart beating, played on the same acoustic intruments with an Irish twist. The Shannons combine guitar, mandolin and voice harmonies in all of our performances to give the feel of acoustic music to any public. The Shannons mostly perform as duo but are available as trio with fiddler Jimmy Ellis or as band on request.

Songwriter magazine  New York have described The Shannons as “pure folk gold”,  Americana Retrofit  have quoted The Shannons as “a folkin killer band”
