Last night, September 11, 2019, I saw my favorite local Irish band perform
in Timonium. The band in question? The ShamRogues! I absolutely love this band!
Jim Phelan, the band’s “leader” and banjo player is super nice and always cool to see and talk to. I told him my birthday was a few days ago and in return, the band played two songs for me and even let me sing with them on one of them! It was so much fun and such an honor to sing with one of my favorite local bands!
But last night’s show was a little different than what I am used to. I am used
to the ShamRogues doing all Irish music. Last night, they played a few Beatles
songs, which surprised me. They played Here Comes the Sun and I’ve Just Seen A
Face. You could tell they were all having such a great time performing! That’s
what I think I love about this band. It’s the fact they are just a bunch of guys and one Irish dancer just having a good time playing music. The fiddle player, Sarah, is an amazing fiddle player!
Speaking of the dancer…the Irish dancer in the band is Katie Fox. Katie is
actually a world-champion Irish dancer, and it shows! She is one Hell of a dancer!It makes me proud to know that a local girl is representing my hometown and kicking ass at it!
So to wrap up, I want to thank the ShamRogues and Jim Phelan in particular
for giving me the amazing opportunity to sing with them for my birthday! I cannot say enough about this amazing band! Don’t take my word for it…just go see them for yourselves! I’m going to leave it at that. Thanks for reading and as always, feel free to comment.
