Biographical Notes

Traditional Newfoundland songs have had a tight hold on Chris Andrews and Mark Hiscock since they were lads, so with Newfoundlanders crossing the globe at an alarming rate, they decided that if Newfoundlanders can't get home, they'll get to them. And get to them they have. In the past few years, Shanneyganock has toured Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and all the Maritime provinces. They are a favourite with festivals across Canada and continue to build a fan base of Newfoundlanders and non-Newfoundlanders alike. In St John's musical circles, Mark has been recognized as a master of the button accordion and a professional folk singer and folk musician since he was in elementary school. Chris started his first band while still wearing a uniform, too, and his burly voice and muscular guitar playing have anchored many a stage ever since. Joined by bassist Bob Pike and percussionist Mike Clarke, the band temporarily left George Street in St John's behind and went west where they developed a serious following among the ex-pats in the Alberta oil fields. When other acts abandoned rural Newfoundland, Shanneyganock dug in their heels, and audiences big and small are always charmed by their stirring ballads, powerful shanties and rib-rattling jigs and reels.
