The famous Galway-based dance band Shaskeen has recorded four CDs of music for the sets. The band's no-nonsense, straightforward performances are very well suited for this sort of thing. And with Charlie Harris (accordion, replaced by Patsy McDonagh on Vol. 4), Eamon Cotter (flute), Maura O'Keeffe (fiddle), and Geraldine Cotter (piano) joining founding members Tom Cussen (banjo) and Benny O'Connor (drums) on the recordings, this is nice music to listen to as well.
