27 year old Shauna comes from a Donegal family which includes one of Ireland’s foremost traditional singers, the late Paddy Tunney.
She is a former All-Ireland singing champion, who picked up the Newcomer of the Year at LiveIreland, 2008. Her performances in the USA prompted Irish-American News to say, ‘At this young age she finds herself a cherished part of our tradition, already. Wow! Let us repeat. WOW.’‘Wishing Tree’ showcases Shauna’s vocal and musical range. It includes traditional songs in Irish; unaccompanied singing; up-tempo, carefully-arranged contemporary material in English and a new song ‘Follow the Heron’ by Karine Polwart.
These simple, but beautiful, arrangements feature Shauna’s vocals with Ryan Molloy on piano. They illustrate the purity, depth and strength of Shauna as a singer and musician and display Ryan Molloy’s keyboard mastery.
