You are most welcome to my site.
This has been put together in response to a growing number of requests from friends and acquaintances to showcase the less well-known side of my musical journey away from the spotlights of the large stage.

In this website I will pull together some of the musical possibilities for your wedding, show or a funeral. I hope you find it helpful. Enjoy reading and hope to see you soon!Deirdre Shannon
