Shane Ó Fearghail – A Long Road
Shane is an Irish Singer-songwriter from Dublin, now based in Vienna. His musical style fits neatly into the Irish Indie Folk box. Likened to REM, Crowded House, Rufus Wainright III and Ron Sexsmith, it is easy to see where his songwriting loyalties lie. Irish music however, is his first love. On stage Shane Ó Fearghail is one of the best live performers out there. Energetic, engaging and unpretentious with a genuine depth and craft to his songwriting that is never far from his Irish Folk roots in it’s storytelling and pathos.
Constantly on the road Shane was the recent winner at the international Sofia Singer-Songwriting Festival in Bulgaria in September 2018. He has recently returned from his Spring Steps Tour of dates 2019 where he performed solo around Europe, playing to to sold out shows in Austria & Germany, including successful performances at Frankfurt Messe, Sofar Concerts series and the new indie island fest, Sofafest Mallorca.
Shane Ó Fearghail & The Host.
As a performing artist, Shane plays solo and also with his band and new musical project ‘The Host’. The band consists of an eclectic group of musicians from Austria, England and Ireland. Together they bring a beautiful element and mix to old and new original songs. Add to that mix an exciting and contemporary Irish, Appalachian, folk roots feel, then sprinkle and sweeten all n’ sundry with that unique European touch and you’ll begin to get an idea and a flavour of how it sounds on stage; a real live electric event!
