It was a historic moment at the Cavern Club during the Beatle Week Festivities when Shannon â The Worldâs Greatest Beatles Artist was presented with an award for all her hard work and dedication to Liverpool.
Online PR News – 03-September-2009 – – In a surprise ceremony Monday night, Shannon was presented with an engraved crystal award on behalf of her name being placed on a plaque on The Cavern Hall of Fame. Presenting the award was Cavern Club owner Bill Heckle. Mr. Heckle said of the award that it was âa special award for those that have brought their talent and gifts to Liverpoolâ. It was an especially historical moment because Shannon is the only non-musician to ever be given this honor.
âThe substance of this award is monumental and makes me very proud. To be inducted into the Cavern's Hall of Fame is truly amazing. To be inducted historically, as the first non-musician, and based on the merit of my Beatles artwork ... that is far more then I could have encompassedâ exclaimed Shannon.
In 1997, the title of 'The Worldâs Greatest Beatles Artist' was bestowed upon Shannon by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool. Shannon has spent the last two years creating 110 paintings for the Hard Days Night Hotel in Liverpool. Shannonâs popular Beatles fame has earned her the Art Director slot in the new Broadway play, âAnd In The End - The Life and Death of John Lennonâ. (www.andintheend.com).
In March 2010 âA Hard Decadeâs Nightâ Shannonâs book about growing up âBeatlesâ will be published.
