Shannon ConnollyLocation: Based in Durban
Shannon Connolly is a refreshingly talented original and cover artist with a broad vocal and genre range.
At the age of 16, Shannon got a head start in the music scene performing as one half of the Pretoria- based acoustic duo, Syrens. The girls went on to share stages with acts like The Awakening, Matthew van der Want and Chris Letcher, Kaolin Thomson and Anika between 1996 and 2002. In 2003 Shannon went to Europe where she tested the waters in London, busked the chilly streets of Galway, Ireland and spent two summers performing for the revellers on the picturesque Greek island of Ios.
Since her return in 2006, Shannon has immersed herself in the Durban music scene, playing regularly at venues in and around the city. She has performed to enthusiastic crowds at four White Mountain Festivals and two Splashy Fens and played alongside some of Durban's finest artists in some of the city’s best-loved venues.
Her original material blends blues, folk and country sounds with Shannon's sometimes quirky insights into life and the South African experience, while her cover performances demonstrate her broad vocal and genre range. Shannon’s repertoire include classic hits and forgotten favourites of the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s as well as a sprinkling of reimagined current pop and rock melodies.
Shannon performs as a solo artist on guitar or as a duo with additional bass or guitar.
