Dad Dancing McShane & Shaw

Check out DAD DANCING, the new McShane & Shaw album!

We’ve just released a fantabulous new album called Dad Dancing, a collection of eclectic and original songs featuring different styles and genres (country, disco, classical, jazz swing, comedy & reggae) superbly recorded and mixed at Ian Rafferty’s “Creative Music” studio.

The album is available to buy both as CD (with free digital download) or download-only at our Bandcamp page.

Crammed with feel-good tunes — a perfect antidote to the approaching winter.”
