Renowned for her collaborations, not just in Irish traditional music, but through all musical genres, Hip-Hop, Cajun, Country, Reggae, Classical and Rap.

The genre-defying star has achieved multi-platinum album sales and has had several number chart topping albums, singles and DVDs in her home country. In 2015, she received an IBAM Award in Chicago for her ‘unique contribution to Irish Music’ Other recipients were Darina Allen and actor Liam Neeson.

Sharon's latest studio album, The Reckoning, will be released on 27 November this year.

Ahmed Dickinson and Eduardo Martin present The Bridge

The famous composer and guitarist Eduardo Martín joins the renowned young guitarist Ahmed Dickinson Cárdenas to create this duo that masterfully addresses the diverse tendencies and styles of the Cuban contemporary music scene.

Martín explores Afro, classical and Anglo-Saxon pop among other varied musical genres that mix in the creative universe of this composer while using in a virtuous way multiple techniques that expand the expressive qualities of the guitar. The use of intelligent melodies, the approach to cultures and dissimilar times converge with the Afro-Caribbean nature trying to propose a musical framework in which the stylistic barriers disappear.
