Sharon Shannon.

The box Sharon plays nowadays is a Castagnari "Tommy" in C#/D, ans she also owns an even smaller Castagnari in B/C, with only one reed to a note. But this CD of hers has material which was recorded over several years, and some years back she used an old Hohner box, which was also tuned very dry. This is the box she used when playing with the Waterboys. As far as I know she never played a Saltarelle box.

Other recordings of Sharon can be heard on Maire Breatnach's "Angel Candles" CD and on the Waterboys' "Room to Roam", the last being an unusual, and hardly traditional album.
