Shane Owens is Ireland’s newest country sensation, and he brings his live show to the Country Ballroom, Tulsk this Saturday, July 18th.
Shane Owens is about to realise his lifelong dream. During 2015 this young and affable 18-year-old has hit the road with a new live dance show which is turning out to be the most exciting event on the country scene this year.
Born in Reading just outside London – to Irish parents (both mum and dad are from Cavan) – from the age of three Shane fell in love with Irish country music. At every opportunity he would raid his dad’s record collection and listen for endless hours to Mick Flavin, Mike Denver and some legends from the USA including Waylon Jennings, George Jones and Willie Nelson.
By the age of five, he was performing the country classic ‘Country Roads’ on stage at his local Irish club, and there and then he was bitten by the bug and has never looked back.
J&C Promotions’ Managing Director and well-known broadcaster Joe Finnegan has already stated his belief that “Shane Owens has what it takes to be a huge international star,” adding “we are delighted to have him with us and already we see great potential in this talented young man.”
