Wassup there, Shiners?!

Wow. It’s been a while. What’s happening? What happened? Did the Shiners stop playing music? Maybe they isolated during the pandemic and never came back outside?! Well…NONE OF THE ABOVE, folks! What did happen was we got a bit lazy with updates to our website, so this is a website post for you old-schoolers. If you follow us on the socials you probably know what’s up. In a nutshell, we’ve played a ton of gigs in the past couple of years…singles, duos, full band shows, oh my! Even smack in the middle of things, we played a virtual live Canada Day concert. Speaking of virtual, we released 4 songs that we recorded both audio and video for, from our homes, called the Social Distancing Sessions, including All Along the Watchtower (arguably one of Dylan’s best songs), You Wreck Me (our tribute to the late great Tom Petty), On the Road Again (inspiration to get back out there), and one of our originals No Darkness (our effort to shed some light on dark times). Oh, we played such a fun show at Ribfest in Cornwall this past summer that was billed as Hadrian’s Wall featuring The Shiners…it was a blast! Anyways, just checking in. We have mews coming…including NEW MUSIC. We are currently writing and demoing new original songs. As we head into Spring, we are back at the Glengarrian for St. Paddy’s 2023. We are trekking up to Chaffey’s Lock, Ontario for an exciting concert and we’re dragging along Ashley MacLeod-McRae on fiddle to empower the roots in our rock and roll. We’ll try and stay better connected folks. Thanks for listening…literally! 😉
