Shanneyganock

They are an East Coast phenomenon,

the band has travelled around the world

promoting and preserving the music and

songs of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Over the course of 13 albums and countless

live shows, they have carried a songbook

that reflects on the rich cultural history of

the Province. Their music inspired the Tony

nominated score of COME FROM AWAY

and in 2017 the band was invited to perform

at the Broadway premiere of the critically

acclaimed play.
