REVIEWS FROM THE 2015 MARYLAND IRISH FESTIVAL
"The ShamRogues don't mess about, straight on and straight in - Top Band..."
"They were the wildest band there, great show..."
"An amazing show, the most energetic band of the weekend..."
Frederick County Public Libraries was delighted to feature The ShamRogues at their 15th Celtic Concert at Mt. St. Mary’s University. Their performance evoked all the fun of the St. Patrick’s Day holiday for the sell-out crowd and people were happy to clap along to old favorites as well as new. Concert goers particularly enjoyed Katie Fox’s step dancing and the historical background the band provided for many of the tunes. After fifteen performances in the North Frederick County area, many people claimed that The ShamRogues were their favorite!

The ShamRogues not only deliver a great musical and visual performance, they engaged our customers and helped me create a night that never existed before. Our bar staff remarked to me that the band was courteous and very easy to deal with. Shortly after their performance, my General Manager told me to book them right away for next year. Top notch high energy Irish music that will energize your night!
