Paul Sheridan (pictured with Shane backstage in the Barrowlands, along with Alan from Shebeen) travels from Glasgow to join us on Saturday 06 Jan for our tribute night to the late, great Shane MacGowan and the music of the Pogues.
Paul has been performing as a musician for over 20 years. Best known as the frontman of Folk’n’Roll group the Wakes, a band descended from the Glasgow-Irish diaspora.
As chief songwriter of the band, Paul has contributed to creating songs with a social conscience, embracing the cultural heritage and roots of the diaspora through their music and subject matter.
Paul and his band mates have performed throughout Europe, touring extensively throughout Germany as well as supporting acts such as Damien Dempsey, Billy Bragg, The Mahones and The Men They Couldn’t Hang among others.
The band’s energetic musical style takes influence from the instrumentation of The Pogues and their rambunctious approach to the traditional Ballad.
Paul joins local front men Ronan McQuillan from the The ENEMIES and Niall Boyle from the Unit and special guests to cover Shane’s songs
DJ sets from Milish & Bazz & plenty of fans stories will be shared about Shane on the night.
