Thirteen 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 Mike Clarke on percussion, the group has since charmed many through their stirring ballads, powerful shanties, and rib-rattling jigs and reels. With a new release just out , their six 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. 2007 also marked 4 Music Newfoundland and Labrador award wins including Entertainers of the Year, as well as a 2008 East Coast Music Award nomination for Roots Group. 2011 Winners of two Music NL awards; Celtic / Traditional Group & Entertainers of the Year! Performing in Doha, Qatar; Memphis (Folk Alliance) they’ve also completed several Cross Canada Tours. For more information please visit http://www.shanneyganock.ca
