Rootin Aboot: Th' Legendary Shack*Shakers, Neck

Friday 8th April The Lemon Tree

Tickets 10 (6.75 concessions & regulars)

Doors Open: 8pm

Show Starts: 9pm

Something a little different for Rootin Aboot as we present a night of roots music from the margins with a definite outlaw worldview. Headliners Th' Legendary Shack*Shakers are one of the world's greatest live bands and they're ably supported by paddypunkers Neck.

Th Legendary Shack*Shakers are widely acclaimed as one of the finest live experiences in the US. Led by demented singer/harmonica player Colonel JD Wilkes they have succeeded in melding the rural, agri-dustrial rhythms of America's puritan work ethic, the intensity of gutbucket blues, the dark underbelly of country and even the madcap oompah of polka.

Over the last five years, London-Irish band Neck have firmly established themselves as a leading force in the folk-punk scene, their irrepressible psycho-ceilidh sound marking them out as transatlantic cousins of Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys. The 6-piece band combines the swirling abandon of traditional Irish music (fiddle, tin-whistle, banjo and uilleann pipes) with the rip-roaring electric guitar, bass & drums of a full-on punk band. All topped-off with the raucous, passionate vocals of song-smith Leeson O'Keeffe formerly of Shane MacGowan's Popes.
