Greenshine are a family trio of Mary Greene, Noel Shine and their daughter Ellie Shine. Two albums in they have become firm favourites on the Cork and national folk scene. Ellie brings a fresh, new voice to the concert stage and airwaves and the close family harmonies they produce are a big feature of their set.
Following on from the success of their single and album The Girl in the Lavender Dress (most played track on RTERadio1 for over a month and third most played Irish track for the year of its release 2016 and reached No. 1 in the iTunes Ireland Singer-Songwriter Chart) they are enjoying similar success with their current single Dandelion Seed which spent over a month at the No. 1 spot on RTERadio1's Airplay Chart this year and over a month on the RTERadio1Recommends List.
The trio's song City of Dreams captured the imagination of listeners and tells the tale of Kurt Cobain's trip to Cork to play Sir Henry's in 1991. The trip had a huge affect on him and he subsequently discovered Cork roots.
Noel and Mary are much in demand as session players and musicians and have graced the recordings a variety of artists including The Republic of Loose, Christy Moore and John Spillane. Greenshine are currently working on their third album.
