Helen O’Shea and the Shanakees

December 8, 2018 @ 8:00 pm

The Shanakees are thrilled to be back at one of their favorite venues – 1867 Sanctuary – with a brand new show for you all as we enter into the holiday season where we will celebrate both songs of Turning Tides… and songs from their newer projects – coming in 2019! 🎶🦋☘️

Their entire little “Shanakee family” will be in full flight for this two hour concert event: songwriter Marvin Perkins (AKA Shawn Shanakee!) – Dobro & Vocals; John Mazzeo (AKA Shaymus Shanakee!) – Guitar, Mandolin & Vocals; Jay Posipanko (AKA Thighg Shanakee!) – Keyboard & Vocals; David Ross (AKA Osheen Shanakee!) – Drums & Percussion; as well as on vocals Helen O’Shea (AKA “Ashling Shanakee”)! 🎶🦋☘️

They truly look forward to entertaining you all at 1867 Sanctuary with all of their story songs (The word Shanakee is derived from the Gaelic word for storyteller!) about life, love, loss, legacy in the “AmeriCeltiCana” style – Americana with a Celtic twist! 🎶🦋☘️
