Biographical Notes

Siochána (pronounced sha-kahw-naa) is Gaelic for peace. The band was based in St John's and made up of founding members Darrin Feehan and Jim Carroll who were originally joined by Wayne James, Bruce Mesh, and Jim Feehan, all talented singers, musicians and songwriters. Over the years, Siochána evolved from a kitchen band to one of the best party bands in the city, and are known for their high energy on stage. They play a mixture of traditional Newfoundland and Labrador music, as well as bluegrass, Celtic, folk and even some rock and roll. Siochána started recording with compilations in support of local children's charities: in 2000, Cops For Cancer - On The Beat, and in 2002, Cops For Kids - The Beat Goes On. All profits for these CDs were donated to charity. In 2005, Siochána released their third album, Siochána On Our Own, which was recorded live at Bridie Molloy's on George Street in St John's. This was the first CD that was all Siochána, and not a compilation for charity. Siochána was honored that year with two nominations from the Music Industry Association of Newfoundland and Labrador (MIANL), Entertainer Of The Year and SOCAN Song Of The Year for Jim Feehan's Dance Me Away.

In 2016, after 16 years, Siochána made some lineup changes and rebranded their band with the name Calver Street.
