After years of hard touring, playing to Newfoundlanders and their friends across the continent and even to the Middle East, Shanneyganock is back with a new album paying tribute to the first family of Irish music, "a Newfoundland musical tribute to the McNulty Family".
Vans, airports and many, many stages has not dulled the band’s appetite for Newfoundland and the songs people love. The passion for the province is front and center, coupled with some new and great folk songs drawn from inspirational artists around the world.
With one of the busiest touring schedules of any group and a popular attraction throughout Canada, Shanneyganock has been a long standing fave at The Stan Rogers Folk Festival and had many a run though the Alberta oil fields, a headline appearance at the East Coast Music Awards, appearances in Memphis, Southern Ontario and was part of Atlantic Canada House at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
Eighteen foggy years ago, Mark Hiscock and Chris Andrews were double booked at a small pub in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Rather than cancel one performer, the charismatic owner suggested they play together and so was born Shanneyganock. Joined by longtime bassist Bob Pike, the group has since charmed many through their stirring ballads, powerful shanties, and rib-rattling jigs and reels. Their previous studio projects have been featured on Home Brew compilations, Warner Record’s Atlantic Standard’s compilation and “Ed’s Up” on OLN Network with The Barenaked Ladies. With 6 Music Newfoundland and Labrador award wins including Entertainers of the Year, East Coast Music Award nomination for Roots Group they delight audiences nation wide.

This is something of a rarity in these parts and it was wonderful to witness! It is heartwarming to know that such talent exists in our country, while at the same time unfortunate those musicians are not always able to be heard by more Canadians.

The only word to describe it is 'Strand.' Let me explain. I was a pre-Kindergarten when Ryan's Fancy was stirring audiences into a frenzy at the old Strand Lounge. Footage of the Ryan's Fancy performances there make me long to be part of the crowd. Shanneyganock's set Saturday night gave me a glimpse of what it might have been like. They had every person in the bar moving and many of those people were going absolutely berserk. It was incredible.
