Shaskeen CD Launch

Shaskeen will be launching their eagerly awaited new album, Walking Up Town in Cois na hAbhna on Saturday 17th January at 8.30pm.

This highly popular traditional Irish group from the West of Ireland got their name from a Reel called THE SHASKEEN.

Formed in London in 1970, SHASKEEN play a fire brand style of Traditional Irish Music reminiscent of a house set dance seen back in Ireland before the introduction of television.

The following albums have already been recorded by Shaskeen:-
SHASKEEN, THE GREEN GROVES OF ERIN, THE DAWN, THE ASH PLANT , THE JOYS OF LIFE, MY LOVE’S IN AMERICA, ATLANTIC BREEZE, THE MOUSE BEHIND THE DRESSER, SILVER JUBILEE ALBUM and 60 min Video SHASKEEN LIVE IN CONCERT AT JOHNNY FOX’s.

Uniquely, the group have also produced a collection of Irish Traditional Dance & Session Tunes as played by Shaskeen for two of their recordings as follows:-

Shaskeen Music Book 1 - THROUGH THE HALF DOOR

Shaskeen Music Book 2 - THE CROSSROADS DANCE

These music books are a great boon for Irish traditional musicians who would like to get notation for tunes as played by a working céilí band.

Check out their CDs. Most of their recordings are available online

SHASKEEN have appeared on numerous TV and Radio shows, performing at set-dances throughout Ireland, England, Scotland, France, Germany, Spain, Moscow and the US.
