Irish flute/whistle player Shannon Heaton was exposed to a variety of music traditions early on. By age 16, she’d lived on three continents. She eventually settled in her adopted home of Boston in 2001, where she was named 2016 Traditional Artist Fellow by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Shannon is a warm, entertaining performer and excels at making Irish music relevant and accessible to a wide variety of audiences. She hosts the Irish Music Stories podcast, performs in a duo with guitarist husband Matt, and has been bringing people together with her YouTube channel for many years. During pandemic days, this virtual community has come together for a weekly Saturday 2 pm session.
