Music Video for Edinburgh Festival
Great to be living in Edinburgh and experiencing the Festival for the first time this month as a resident of this great city. Getting a very enthusiastic response to gigs at the Waverley Village pop up Bar on Princess St as well as my gigs at The Black Rose, Biddy Mulligans and other renowned local venues. I have also been working on a new music video for my song "It Took A While" from my current Album "Sharing A Song", which was shot in Rome. Here it is, I hope you like it.
Rome and album review
Just a quick update today. I recently got back from an amazing weekend at Scholars Lounge in Rome. What a magic city to get to play in and the pub truly deserved their Pub of the Year Award - such a great venue. I am now preparing for four days in Oslo with my band. Hope to see you there!
Also, Folk Radio UK published a review of my new album Sharing a Song. Check it out here.
It's been a busy couple of months for me. In September, I moved to Edinburgh, and I have found it a great city for music with lots of sessions and songwriter nights. I have been busy getting to know the local music scene, and have been working hard at getting my name out there and the response has been very good so far. I have played at some fantastic venues and can't believe how warm and welcoming the people in Scotland have been.
In November I am going to Rome to play a weekend at Scholars Lounge, who won the Irish Pun Global Award earlier this month (congratulations!), before heading to Oslo, Norway at the end of the month to The Dubliner Irish Pub.
On December 23rd, I'm teaming up with the ret of the lads in Toss the Feathers again for our yearly Christmas gig in St Kents Fallowfield. This is always a great and I can't wait to see all our fans again.
Thank you to everyone who has purchased my CD, both online and at my live concerts. I hope you've enjoyed it!
The album is available here.
Love from Eddie
Sharing a Song - Out Now!

I am delighted to be releasing my new album “Sharing a Song”. I began demoing the first versions of some of this collection of songs about two years ago and it was after my 5 week German tour in March/April this year that the bulk of the recording happened and I set the release date of August 28th for my 10 self penned songs.
I had the pleasure and good fortune to work with a great group of musicians on the album. The recording sessions took place at various locations in Ireland, Mike McGoldrick’s studio in Manchester and Oslo.
I’m really excited and looking forward to going out touring the album and I hope to see you along the way.
Hope you enjoy the songs!
I has been a very busy few weeks. I'm putting the finishing touches to the recording of the new album. It started with a trip to Manchester to record with my ex band member of Toss the Feathers, Michael McGoldrick (Mark Knopfler and Transatlantic Sessions House Band). The album also features a track on which Dirk Powell (four time Grammy award winner) plays five string banjo.
I am currently touring in Norway, where I just had Aidan O'Brien sprinkle his electric guitar magic on a few tracks.
I can't wait to share it with you!
This is my new website! Here you can find information about myself, listen to a few tracks, see photos and videos and get in touch.
My name is Eddie Sheehan and I'm a singer/guitarist from County Tipperary in Ireland. I write my own songs and deliver great versions of songs from other artists.
2017 has been a very exciting year for me so far. In February I supported David Francey at Celtic Connections, and in March and April I was part of the Irish Spring Tour of Germany. I also play regular gigs around Ireland, in Manchester and in Oslo, Norway. At the moment I am working on a new album to be released in the end of August.
