GREENSHINE is a Cork based family trio comprising Noel Shine, Mary Greene and their daughter Ellie. Their material straddles the boundaries of contemporary, folk and roots and includes many self-penned songs. The band is known for striking family harmonies and excellent musicianship. Noel is a multi-instrumentalist, turning his hand to guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, bouzouki and traditional whistle and this musical dexterity had seen him much in demand as a session and band player by artists as diverse as The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem and funk and soul legends The Republic of Loose amongst many others. The 2018 release of Greenshine's single Dandelion Seed has seen their star rise even further with the song being retained on the RTERadio1 Recommended list for 4 weeks and at the No.1 spot on the stations Airplay Chart for over a month. The band performed the song and were interviewed live by Sean O Rourke on the Today Show. Their latest single THE GOOD IS GONE emulated the success of previous singles for the band enjoying the top spot on the Airplay Chart for several weeks. June sees the release of Greenshine's new album FAMILY.
