About the Host

Shannon Heaton


Welcome to Irish Music Stories, the show about traditional music, and the bigger stories behind it. I’m your host, Shannon Heaton. I play Irish flute and sing; I travel around the globe to perform and teach; and I LOVE Irish music and dance, and related Celtic traditions. Creating this show is my way of sharing the rich inspiration that the global 'trad' community has given to me. And you don’t have to know ANYTHING about jigs and reels to listen!
