One of Irelands most famous musicians, Sharon Shannon began her career in 1991 as a guest musician with The Waterboys. She has subsequently toured the world and collaborated with the likes of Steve Earle, The Waterboys, Jackson Browne and Kirsty MacColl. Also featured on the album: Steve Earle, Jackson Browne, Carlos Nunez, John Prine, Donal Lunny, The Hot House Flowers. A departure for Sharon Shannon in that it features tracks from her favourite vocalists and musicians and is less traditional. This album is her most successful to date and went triple platinum in Ireland alone. Press quotes: "Shannons accordion lends its beautiful signature to each song and the result is one of the most ambitious and successful acoustic fusion albums of recent years" HMV Choice "One of the albums of the year came from a rare source- roots. Accordion and fiddle virtuoso Sharon Shannon released a real cracker, full of rootsy charm but played with the edge of a rock guitarist" - Leicester "Diamond Mountain is a magnificent reminder of why Sharon Shannon can spellbind an audience in milliseconds" Hot Press Tracks: A Costa De Galicia (with Carlos Nunez) / The Galway Girl (with Steve Earle) / The Diamond Mountain / Slan Le Van (with John Hoban) / The Four Jimmys (the Fitz Theme) / A Man of Constant Sorrow (with Jackson Browne) / Say You Love Me (with Dessie O' Halloran) / The Pernod Waltz (with the Woodchoppers) / The Hounds of Letterfrack / On the Banks of the Old Pontchertrain (with The Hothouse Flowers) / Love Love Love (with John Prine & Mary Staunton) / Jota Do Porto Cabo (with Carlos Nunez) / Fire In The Bellies (with Liz and Yvonne Kane) / Northern Lights
