A native of Camross, County Laois, Shawn Cuddy is the eldest of a family of seven children.
During his early years in show business he performed with his two sisters and eventually, after working in a hospital, driving a truck and performing as a solo artist. Shawn formed his own band and has never looked back since.
He has built up a strong legion of fans on both sides of the Irish Sea with his highly entertaining live performance.
His current single, ‘Story For My Daddy’, a song that tugs at the heartstrings, has turned out to be another success for the Laois singer while Shawn’s ‘Best Of’ compilation album is also a big seller.
Shawn Cuddy will appear at The Times Hotel, Tipperary town Sunday night, January 13
