Biography

After almost 20 years of hard touring, playing to Newfoundlanders and new friends across the continent and even to the Middle East, and the North Pole Shanneyganock is back with a brand new album "Rockin' On The Water" this is the bands 13 recording and is in the running as their fastest selling release to date, already reaching #1 on itunes international for Canada in the first few weeks of its debut..

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.

Nineteen 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, and drummer Billy Sutton, 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.
