The Sharon Shannon Collection 1990-2005 is a two CD set highlighting Sharon Shannon’s 15 year career. The tracks featured on this album are selected from her catalog and brilliantly encapsulate the scope of Sharon’s musical influences. These influences range from traditional Irish to dance, reggae, Cajun, classical and French-Canadian and are reflected in the eclectic mix of musicians that Sharon has collaborated with over the past 15 years including Steve Earle, Jackson Browne, Kirsty MacColl, Donal Lunny, Natalie MacMaster, Sinead O’Connor, dub master Denis Bovell, and Carlos Nunez.
"The stunning technique and restless imagination of Sharon Shannon have been strong features of Irish music in recent years, leading to one brilliant album after another." – The Daily Telegraph
