Thirteen foggy years ago, Mark Hiscock and Chris Andrews were double booked at a small pub in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Rather than cancel one performer, the charismatic owner suggested they play together and so was born Shanneyganock. Joined by longtime bassist Bob Pike and Mike Clarke on percussion, the group has since charmed many through their stirring ballads, powerful shanties, and rib-rattling jigs and reels. With a new release just out , their six previous studio projects have been featured on Home Brew compilations, Warner Record’s Atlantic Standard’s compilation and “Ed’s Up” on OLN Network with The Barenaked Ladies. 2007 also marked 4 Music Newfoundland and Labrador award wins including Entertainers of the Year, as well as a 2008 East Coast Music Award nomination for Roots Group. Performing in Doha, Qatar; Memphis (Folk Alliance) they've also completed several Cross Canada Tours. Titled Volume VII, the newest disc is available where great folk music is sold Nation wide.

After two years of hard touring, playing to Newfoundlanders and their friends across the continent and even to the Middle East, Shanneyganock is back with a new album and a new sound. Volume VII highlights their twelfth year together, and it is their landmark seventh studio release. Their two years of vans, airports and many, many stages has not dulled the band’s appetite for Newfoundland and the songs people love. The passion for the province is front and center, coupled with some new and great folk songs drawn from inspirational artists around the world. With one of the busiest touring schedules of any act, and a popular attraction throughout Canada, Shanneyganock kicked off 2009 with their first ever appearance in the United States, a run though the Alberta oil fields, and a headline appearance at the East Coast Music Awards. In May, they will celebrate the release of Volume VII, with a tour of the province’s Arts and Culture Centers. The concerts will feature some of the songs from the new album, which have already been big hits on local radio, along with the many classics from their previous albums. With over a decade of material to choose from, each and every member of their huge audience will walk away having heard all of their favourites.
