On July 9th, Shane joined Pete Doherty and the Libertines onstage at their gig at the 3Arena, Dublin, to round off the festivities in rousing fashion! ( Pics: Shane onstage with the Libertines and friends, and backstage at 3Arena).
Shane and his partner, Victoria Mary Clarke, spoke on the Brendan O’Connor show on July 17th about five songs that meant something to them. The songs they chose were Astral Weeks, Van Morrison, Bad by U2, London You’re A Lady, The Pogues, Are You The One I’ve Waited For, by Nick Cave and a John Coltrane track. They hosted Brendan and his team at their home. Pics below.
Shane talked on Victoria Mary Clarke’s ‘Art of Living’ radio show recently. He talked about Irish music, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline and his own music. He was joined by singer-songwriter, Mundy. Click on the link below to listen.
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?
