Noel Shine & Mary Greene have long been an important element of the folk and Americana scene in Ireland and figure Christy Moore and Sharon Shannon amongst their legion of fans.Their material straddles the boundaries of contemporary, folk & roots & includes many self-penned songs.Their fast picking and close harmonies are a treat to the ear.
Noel is a multi-instrumentalist, turning his hand to guitar, bass, mandolin, bouzouki & whistle & his musical dexterity had seen him much in demand as a session & band player by artists as diverse as funk and soul legends The Republic of Loose & The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem amongst many others.
Mary brings rhythm guitar to the mix and her voice is a wonderfully versatile instrument. She has added her voice to the albums of Christy Moore, John Spillane, Mick Hanly & Frances Black as well as cult psychedelic outfit Dr. Strangely Strange.
RTE's Aonghus McAnally described it as 'The most creative thing to come out of Ireland in quite a while.' Similar praise was heaped upon their follow up singles Shadowland & City of Dreams all three songs ensuring they are seldom absent for long from radio playlists.
