Join us for Sunday in Edison Park with Joe McShane. Joe started playing the harmonica at the age of 5. At age 12 he got a Framus guitar from a catalogue and soon started picking and singing the Irish ballads. Joe McShane is one of the most soulful balladeers of all time with a voice of pure velvet whilst fingerpicking his guitar and playing harmonica. He has proved himself to be a national treasure as a songwriter, His first song was penned at age 14 titled “My Silverbridge Home”. Susan McCann recorded this song as “My Forkhill Home” on her “Sentimental Journey” Album. (this album received a platinum disc) She later recorded another song of Joe’s called “Love Me One More Time”
