Headline: Ryan Sheridan
Ryan Sheridan, a multi-instrumentalist, came from the busking streets to a centre stage headline act in less than a year. A gifted and inventive guitarist, he has combined his six-string skills with percussive attack to create a unique sound that has thrilled packed houses worldwide. A born entertainer, this passionate singer with a gift for storytelling is a commanding stage presence; and his acoustic-driven, anthemic songs, connects with audiences wherever he is seen and heard. Ryan’s debut album – ‘The Day You Live Forever’ – was released in 2011. Fuelled by the massive hits ‘Jigsaw’ and ‘The Dreamer’, the album went on to achieve platinum status in Ireland. In 2015, Ryan Sheridan’s second album ‘Here And Now’ went straight to No.1 in the Irish charts.
