$500 - $2500 per event
Americana, Newfoundland folk, and a soupcon of Irish & Celtic music, delivered with joy and enthusiasm by 4 experienced professional musicians who will light up your event.

=Skye Alexander delivers exquisitely beautiful, highly nuanced lead vocals, haunting harmonies and plays the penny whistle sweetly on top of it.
=Ed Sherry, multi-instrumentalist wrings beauty from everything from a bouzouki to a mandocello and a dobro, and does a nice baritone lead when called on. and then there are those sea chanties and pirate songs he sings that get the whole room involved.
=Doug Closson sings a lovely and textured lead tenor, both on his own songs, and those of the Newfoundland folk genre, while playing a solid rhythm guitar. Does a real nice job on harmony as well.
=World Championship Competitor Percussionist Rob Wilson anchors on bodhran and sings a few harmonies his own self.

We have guest fiddlers available to really up the energy
-Alison Bailey-Streich is an absolute master of her instrument - brings not only Irish Jigs and Reels but also a true Bluegrass voice to West of Shannon Sound.
-And then there is Darcy Noonan - just back from a year and a half in Galway - she is superb on that fiddle.

Want to embody the true fiery spirit of a Dublin Pub? We can bring Sean Lightholder out of an early retirement to authentically raise the craic (Irish for enjoyment) for sure, for sure, with traditional songs and his own as well. 8 years in Ireland and touring the continent has given his voice a texture and a joyous sentiment that brings a happy energy to any event. When back with West of Shannon the seamless support raises the intensity of the music ad the energy of the event to a new high.

A multi-talented, rollicking group we are indeed, and not to humble as to say it ourselves, and we do.
