Shenanigans – Songs of Ireland

March 16, 2019 @ 8:00 pm

Preservation New Jersey invites you to join the Celtic band Shenanigans – bringing you the songs of Ireland, old and new – for a very special concert event “Ceol agus Cairde – Music and Friends” again celebrating St Patricks Day at the 1867 Sanctuary! Come out and sing with us! #CelticForADay Beidh moran craic againn go leir le cheile!

Based in Princeton, New Jersey, Shenanigans was created in 2015 when Helen O’Shea – born in Ireland, now living in Princeton – was asked to create a show similar to an old fashioned Irish Kitchen Party for Princeton Public Library. Helen set out to find the finest singers and musicians around with an interest in the songs of her Celtic heritage and the rest is history!

Shenanigans lineup is composed of anywhere from six to ten musicians/vocalists depending on the show. For this March 16th show, the Shenanigans lineup includes Fil Wisneski, Paul Bejgrowicz, Marvin Perkins, Peter Guarnaccia,  Robert Cole, Fiona Tyndall, Barbara Esposito Paskin, John Mazzeo,and  Helen O’Shea with Garry Pearsall running sound.

Helen O’Shea & SHENANIGANS (Rich Bozic, Peter Guarnaccia, Mark O’Donnell, Garry Pearsall, Katie Wessinger-Bozic, iona Tyndall, Paul Bejgrowicz, Bob Cole, Fil Wisneski & Marv Perkins) perform their version of “All Along The Wild Atlantic Way” by Aoife Scott.
