Shane goes Electric!

Written by CatMac

Shane was at Ireland’s annual end of summer, but hottest festival The Electric Picnic at Stradbally Hall Co. Laois, the last weekend in August and had a blast getting back to his roots, playing the washboard and jamming with friends.  Don’t ask who the guy in the horse’s head is – who knows?
