The band Shaskeen celebrates 50 years on the road this year. Tom Cussen was the man that put the band together in London in 1970. David Sanders wasn’t even born in 1970 but today he is the latest recruit to the band that has done so much to promote traditional Irish music and song over the years.
The release of the band’s new albim in celebration of its 50 years was dampened by the unexpected loss of two of its long-time members, Pat Broderick and Pat Costello within 4 days of each other.
Tom and David talk about all aspects of the band as they chat with Ger Sweeney.
