Shenandoah singing in Cork, Ireland

May 4, 2012 by

The shapenote singers of Cork, Ireland have been meeting about twice a month to sing from the Shenandoah preview packet.  Although they don’t currently have a regular date, Mike Morrisroe writes “There’s no set venue as we’re keeping it in people’s houses for the moment and that’s generally switching every time. Also, if a singer from abroad is interested we may be able to change the date to accommodate them.  My personal email is mjckhead@gmail.com and I’ve no problem with people contacting me, speech-wise, on +353 86 050 5061 if they prefer.”

  1. In Cork, we meet weekly in Camden Palace Hotel on a Thursday, 7pm-9pm, to sing from the Sacred Harp.
    For our last 2 or 3 sessions there have been a couple of Shenandoah packets in attendance (thanks to Mike Morrisroe) and I forsee the new bunch of songs only gaining popularity here! So, anyone who makes it to our weekly SH singing is more than likely to get to enjoy some sneaky Shenandoah too. Thanks.
    Keep up the good work!
