For the past seven years, I have been a featured musician at many weddings in Ireland. I am also a guitarist, singer/songwriter, and performer who tours internationally. Career highlights to date include a sold-out solo concert at the National Concert Hall in Dublin, collaborations with internationally renowned artists including Tommy Emmanuel and Bill Whelan (Riverdance), and appearances at major music festivals and arts festivals in Ireland and abroad.

Whether it is for your wedding ceremony, your drinks reception, or even your second-day party, you can be sure that the music I provide will create the perfect, memorable, celebratory atmosphere for your special day!

My repertoire is extensive, taking in the full breadth of music from Bach to Billie Eilish - nothing is off the table as far as the 'playlist' for the day! While I am better known for my solo-guitar work, I am also a vocalist with a speciality in the jazz/swing style. I work with each couple to curate their perfect repertoire list, and even offer unique bespoke arrangements of music for your big day, be they jazz standards, movie themes, pop songs, or anything in between. I also offer to write original pieces of music for couples' marriages. Take a look at my YouTube channel to see a selection of the pop songs I have arranged for the guitar.

I also collaborate regularly with other musicians, and can provide numerous duo and trio options, including guitar + vocals, guitar + strings, guitar + piano, and much more!

I'd love to hear from you if you want to find out more about my musical services - check out my website where you'll find information about my music, and plenty of videos!

Shane & Aoife were amazing and very easy to work with on every level. We had them play at the second day of our wedding and everyone was blown away by their talent. They kept the room entertained all evening with their choice of songs. We would highly recommend using them for any of your musical needs!

Shane was an absolute pleasure to deal with from the moment we first contacted him. Shane played both our ceremony and drinks reception, we had so many compliments on the music for both! Shane's a fabulous guitar player, always quick to respond to any queries or requests we had, and an absolute gentleman to deal with, thank you so much!

Shane was super professional and his service was 5 star. He really read the room and played songs that were really in line with our guests and room.

Hi Rob, thanks a million. It was my pleasure to play at your reception in the Merrion recently, and I enjoyed our chat that day too. I'm delighted you enjoyed the music, and I wish you both all the best! Shane

Shane is the consummate pro and we were absolutely thrilled to have him perform at both our wedding ceremony and reception. There's nothing he can't play, he accommodated all of our requests, and riffed his way wonderfully throughout our entire reception – gauging the mood of the room and taking the atmosphere up a notch or three as and when needed. Can't recommend him enough.

Hey Tim! Thanks so much for that lovely review. I really enjoyed performing at yourself and Andrea's ceremony + reception in The Merrion, and in particular getting to work with Abby on vocals for the ceremony. Hope to see you both at a show before long, and best wishes! Shane

Shane was absolutely fantastic, he made the day so special for us. We had some obscure song requests and he did them beautifully. We got so many requests for his details from our guests, I would highly recommend him.

Thank you Lisa! It was my pleasure to perform at yourself and Ronan's ceremony & reception in the Merrion last December. I was honoured that you asked me to perform for your first dance! Wishing you both all the happiness and success in the world! Shane

Shane played at our wedding reception in April 2017. He was absolutely AMAZING! He is a genius on the guitar. The sun was shining and Shane playing the guitar as we arrived to the hotel was just magic. All of our guests commented on how lovely the music was. Shane has a natural talent and is very professional. Count yourself lucky if he plays at your wedding. ????

Shane played guitar soloist at our drinks reception. His music set was varied, flexible and suited to the audience; anything we wanted. Shane was one of the highlights of our Wedding day. The experience he contributed to our day was very special and unique. Shane is a gifted, talented young man. And we were so pleased he was able to share the day with us. We recommend Shane 100%; a gentleman and everyone loved him!

Shane played our wedding ceremony and reception; he was fantastic! Would definitely recommend to a friend: incredibly professional, great value, and very easy to work with!

Thanks Tadhg & Jean! Your wedding in City Hall was spectacular - I really enjoyed playing there a few years ago, and at the drinks reception in the Stephen's Green club afterwards too. Best wishes to you both!
