Sharon Corr

One of the Corr sisters now striking out on her own, Sharon Corr came on air with David White to have a chat about her upcoming tour, single and album.

Sharon is probably best known as being one quarter of the multi-platinum, internationally renowned family band The Corrs. A band that sold in excess of 35 million albums worldwide.

Listen to the interview with Sharon and hear her live performance of her new single:

She was born in Dundalk, Ireland and began playing violin at the tender age of six. The band’s traditional Irish sound that she helped produce on fiddle certainly made The Corrs an instantly recognizable and truly unique act but what is perhaps less well known is that Sharon not only added beautiful harmonies and backing vocals but personally wrote or co-wrote many of the band’s hits.

After taking a few years out to have children she is back in the studio, writing and recording.

Her first single as a solo artist  ‘It’s Not a Dream‘ was released in Ireland and the UK on 28th August.

Sharon and her band have been playing at the Isle of Wight and Glastonbury festivals with a set of her new tracks, an odd Corrs favourite and some traditional Irish tunes. Sharon sings lead, plays violin and piano.
