Episode Info:   The Modern Fingerstyle Guitar Podcast is back after a short hiatus, this time featuring self-taught 21-year-old guitar player from Dublin, Ireland named Shane Hennessy. Shane has been steeped in traditional Irish music his entire life, starting out by playing the Concertina. You can hear the distinct influences of Irish melodic ideas in songs like The Rebellion, but Shane can also bring some serious funk, especially on his tune Avenue (both featured on the podcast). You can learn everything you could ever want to know about Shane and his music on his website, and follow him on Facebook and Twitter. His latest album Zephyrus is out now.
