Shaskeen 50th Anniversary Live Stream – 18th October
Thursday 15 October 8 pm Galway Time
The Galway Sessions 2020 is delighted to present this special concert. Few bands make this remarkable milestone and the fact that Shaskeen have reached such is a testament to the band’s exceptional music and their ability to entertain throughout five decades.
A fantastic year-long tour had been planned by band leader and banjo player Tom Cussens, which unfortunately has to be cancelled due to Covid 19. Also, tragically, the band lost two of its members, singer, guitarist, folklorist and radio presenter, Pat Costello as well as well-known piper Pat Broderick. RIP. This concert is a tribute to both of these well-known and well-loved musicians.
