Shaun Davey (born 18 January 1948) is an Irish composer.
Shaun Davey was born in Belfast in 1948 and attended Rockport School in County Down. He graduated from Trinity College, Dublin in the history of Art in 1971. He then took a master's degree at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London. In the late 1970s, he made his first recording, "Davey and Morris," with James Morris, and guest artist Donal Lunny, produced by Tony Hooper of The Strawbs. He worked as a composer of advertising jingles, including "The Pride of the Herd" for the National Dairy Council, 7up, Bank of Ireland and many more.
Davey's reputation is built on four large-scale concert works based on Irish history, all using uilleann pipes and folk tunes.

"The Brendan Voyage" (1980) depicts the journey taken by explorer Tim Severin, in 1978, from Ireland across the Atlantic to Newfoundland in a leather currach. Severin's journey was a recreation of the one allegedly made by Saint Brendan. The style is similar to that of film composer John Williams. The work uses the traditional uilleann pipes to represent the small currach, while the rest of the orchestra represents the conditions, islands and wildlife encountered by the boat.
"The Pilgrim" (1983) is set in a vaguely medieval world where the Irish, the Bretons and Scots explore the seas of western Europe. It exists in two versions: the 1983 recording made at the Lorient Interceltic Festival, and an expanded version recorded mostly in the 1990s.
"Granuaile" (1985) tells the story of Gráinne O'Malley, an Irish pirate queen in the 16th century. It has more songs than the previous works and features the voice of Rita Connolly (who married Davey soon after). Donal Lunny again contributed as a session musician. It is a homophonic piece of music set in the re mode.It was also played by a chamber orchestra
"The Relief of Derry Symphony" (1990) has a more obvious symphonic structure. It is based around the 17th century Siege of Derry, showing the Protestants inside and the Catholics outside the beleaguered city. Whereas the previous three works involved uilleann piper Liam O'Flynn, this one uses a Scottish bagpipe band, who enter the auditorium from behind the audience.
Davey has worked on numerous films. His most famous film score has been Waking Ned Devine (1998), with contributions from Peter McSherry, Liam O'Maonlai, The Voice Squad, Nollaig Casey and Arty McGlynn. His other scores include Twelfth Night, The Tailor of Panama and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Television work includes The Hanging Gale for the BBC (the score won an Ivor Novello and was nominated for a BAFTA), the theme to Ballykissangel (nominated for a BAFTA). In 2000, he collaborated with Richard Nelson on the musical James Joyce's The Dead which was performed on Broadway,for which the score was nominated for a Tony.

Other notable work remains Granuaile, which features Rita Connolly's soaring soprano voice. Liam O'Flynn's solo album Out To An Other Side (1993) had several tracks written by Davey. Shaun also created a setting of St. Patrick's Breastplate titled The Deer's Cry, first used on the soundtrack of the TV documentary Who Bombed Birmingham and later included on his album The Pilgrim.

In prison cells, darkened by the towering factory chimneys of English cities, the voices of thrush and blackbird, of cuckoo and corncrake, away in Glen na Mona, the croon of the breeze above wide stretches of purple heather, the happy laughter of children, the rustling of ripe corn under a harvest moon, the joys of pattern day and bonfire night, the flashing of silver streams in summer, the leaping flames of glowing peat-fires on winter nights, the ballads, the music, the merriment of years long past and gone, came in through the narrow grating set high in a gloomy wall, and with them came songs that would not be denied.
