RYAN SHERIDAN & RONAN NOLAN (R&R)
Ryan Sheridan and Ronan Nolan (R&R) are a 2 piece, fast and furious, live acoustic act. Formed in Dublin Ireland, the two had already been playing together in a 4 piece band for Ryan's solo career, but after numerous acoustic sets, it all started to make sense that acoustic was the direction, it was impressively energetic and it was only made for two. Ryan Sheridan, a native of Monaghan Ireland, started his stage career at the age of 15, as a performer with the world renowned phenomenon 'Riverdance the show'. After years of touring life, in 2001 the show moved to Broadway NYC. Now 19 and Influenced by the melting pot of culture that is New York, Ryan first began to write songs and perform them in east village cafes, pubs and clubs. After a short stint in different bands, Ryan moved back to Dublin where he became a street musician and started to work on what was to become his trademark sound. It was here, in 2011, he was recognised. Now signed to a new Management, Record and Publishing deal, Sheridan goes on to become a No.1 Platinum selling artist with sold out tours at both home and in mainland Europe. Ronan Nolan a native of Tullamore Ireland, started playing drums at the young age of 14. Influenced by bands such as Metallica, Korn, Pantera, Ronan spent years in numerous bands mastering the style of his influences before finding his own unique style. With his 'hard hitting powerhouse' style drumming, Ronan soon became the go to session musician for recording artists and touring musicians alike, playing in Asia, the Americas and Europe. Only in 2016, when the opportunity presented itself to support Rodrigo Y Gabriel on their US tour, did Sheridan and Nolan get together to form the fast and furious live acoustic spectacle it is now. There is a definite 'seeing is believing' aspect to this impressive sound that Ryan and Ronan can produce with just an Acoustic Guitar and a Cajon. With a headline tour now booked for the US, the acoustic duo are writing, rehearsing and perfecting the new touring show. This is indeed a spectacle. A dynamic, energetic, acoustic performance of 2 born entertainers.
