Shandrum Céilí Band
The Shandrum Céilí Band, three-in-a-row All-Ireland Champions, takes their name from the Shandrum parish in North County Cork. The band was in existence from the 1950s through to the 1970s, playing for dances and céilithe in all the major halls across North Cork. The current band, that has links to their predecessors, is in high demand across the country and abroad to provide music for dances, concerts and céilithe, much like the old band had in their heyday. The present day band have a line up of young musicians who have all achieved success on the céilí band circuit, winning medals in all the age groups right through to senior level. The power, drive and lift of the band are a salute to the way the old band played whilst having a distinctive sound of their own. The band was formed in December 2014 and played their first engagement in Cois na hAbhna, Ennis, for the annual Christmas Céilí to a capacity attendance.
Fuair The Shandrum Céilí Band, atá craobh na hÉireann buaite acu trí huaire as a chéile, a ainm ó Pharóiste Sheandroma i dtuaisceart Chontae Chorcaí. Bhí an banna seo in ard a réime ó na 1950í go dtí na 1970í agus iad ag seinnt do dhamhsóirí sna hallaí móra go léir i dTuaisceart Chorcaí. Is préamhaithe sa traidisiún céanna atá an banna reatha a bhfuil an tóir chéanna orthu is a bhí ar an dream a chuaigh rompu ceol a sheinnt ag céilithe agus coirmeacha ceoil in Éirinn agus thar lear. Ceoltóirí óga atá sa ghlúin nua, ceoltóirí a ghnóthaigh ardghradaim i gcomórtais na mbannaí céilí, idir shóisear is shinsear. Tá cumhacht, fuinneamh agus croí an bhanna fós ag teacht leis an seantraidisiún, cé go bhfuil a gcuid féin déanta ag an dream óg den cheol. Athbhunaíodh an banna i mí na Nollag 2016 agus bhí lán a’ tí ann nuair a sheinn siad le chéile den chéad uair i gCois na hAbhna, Inis an Chláir, do Chéilí Bliantúil na Nollag
