Shaskeen 40 Bliain Faoi Bhláth
The remarkable success of the Irish Traditional music band Shaskeen for over forty years is also the story of one man's dream and determination. Under Tom Cussen's stewardship Shaskeen has kept its fan base and has successfully negotiated the many changes in the music scene over the years in the cabaret, pub and dance circuits.
Shaskeen 40 Bliain Faoi Bhláth is a one hour documentary for TG4 produced by ForeFront Productions which explores the origins, development and longevity of one of Irelands most popular traditional music bands which is now over forty years on the road.
The documentary gives a detailed history of the band, but it also contextualises the music among the immigrants in London of the 1970's, where Shaskeen was formed, and in the thriving dance music scene in the west of Ireland where the band had its musical roots.
The CD, Walking Up Town. will soon be available for track download on various websites like iTunes etc.
