Cullen Community Centre are hosting a concert with the Shandrum Céilí Band and guests on Saturday the 23rd of November in Cullen Church. This promises to be a great night and all proceed will go to Cullen Community Centre.
A night of celebration and remembrance for Marie Collins who passed away in January 2018 will take place on the August Bank Holiday Sunday (4th) in Knocknagree Church, Co. Cork and all proceeds are going to Sudden Adult Death Ireland. In store for those in attendance is an evening of traditional music, song and dance hosted by Three-in-a-row All-Ireland Champions, The Shandrum Céilí Band.
Concert organiser Timmy Collins said: My mom, Marie, has been described as a pillar of the community and was adored by many. Originally from Knocknagree, she married my Dad, Danny, in 1992 and made the big move to Doon, Kiskeam. She loved music and bestowed upon me, more so than anyone else, my love and loyalty for Sliabh Luachra music. I also got my skill for organisation and social media from her, long before she set up her business DigiPulse Marketing. We will remember and celebrate her at this very special event – Ní hé líon na bport, ach feabhas an cheoil.

Between them they have nearly 200 years of experience in playing traditional Irish music and dozens of medals at all levels, in Fleadh, Scór, Siansa Gael Linn and others. Indeed, a little-known fact is that many of them are set dancers themselves, some even winning titles at All-Ireland level. They understand the dancers’ need for lively rhythmic music. The band has a dedicated following across the country and even the world.
The Shandrum Céilí Band were in existence from the 1950s to the 1970s and, with their blessing, the current band was established in December 2014. [read more …] “Twice All-Ireland Champions Shandrum Céilí Band CD Launch this Sat. Night in Buttevant”
