Shaskeen Irish Pub Session

This is a DVD video of the Shaskeen Band playing a session in Fox’s Pub before an audience. There are no “tracks” as such on the DVD but the various sets can be accessed on a dvd player by going to the “chapters”. The DVD serial number is DVD615 and it may be purchased online at Usefully, the DVD is PAL format on one side and NTSC on the other.
The band line-up is:
Tom Cussen - banjo, who introduces each set with a few words
Pat Costello - vocal, guitar, mandolin
Eamon Costello - flute
Conor Keane - accordion
Benny O’Conner - drums, bodhran

Unlike CDs, one may play along with this DVD and see the musicians as they play.

trevor if you take away the types of tunes in brackets e.g. (reels)

Thanks, Sam, I’ve deleted the tune types in parentheses (except for “song”), as you suggested, and more links now show.

Just a small correction there, Trevor. It was Eamon Cotter, not Costello, on flute.

Thanks, Mike. That’s not the first time a publisher has got important information wrong on a record sleeve 🙂

It’s a nice light hearted DVD. I really enjoyed watching it being a big fan of the group.


It’s available as a CD too.

Cock and the Hen

Could somebody help on this tune on the DVD - it sounds like a 2 part version of Kid on the Mountain. Is that correct or does it have another name?

Track 14…..

…is 4 reels. “Crowley’s” links to the correct tune, the 2nd is “Lord McDonald’s”, the 3rd is “The Cameronian”, and it finishes with the version of “The Mason’s Apron” commonly associated with Kevin Burke and Jacky Daly.
