Cuddy delights audiences with his brand of Irish and country
Shetland Country Club’s latest guest, Irish singer Shawn Cuddy, delighted audiences in the isles over the weekend.
Cuddy, from Camross in County Laois, was making his third visit to Shetland. He performed at the Garrison Theatre in Lerwick on Thursday, the Brae Hall on Friday evening and the Lerwick Legion last night.
He sang a wide variety of songs, ranging from old favourite The Leaving of Liverpool to Coast to Coast’s 1981 hit Do the Hucklebuck, and included several tracks from his new album Reflections.
A substantial crowd at the Legion concert included a number Irish people who now live in Shetland, and they very much enjoyed a mixture of Irish and country music from a very slick performer.
One fan described Cuddy as “really, really good” and “more fun than Daniel O’Donnell”.
