Frank McShane is Calgary based and moved to Canada from Ireland in the 90’s. He was brought up on a musical diet of Cash, Jones, Haggard, Willie Nelson Hank Snow and Don Gibson as well as folk heroes such as Hiatt, Prine and Rodney Crowell. His teens and twenties saw Elvis Costello, Blue Rodeo and others thrown into the mix of influences and later the Mavericks, Tom Phillips and Corb Lund among many others too numerous to mention. Calgary’s music scene and venues (A Bar Named Sue, Karma Café, Kayos, the King Eddy, The Ironwood, Mikey’s, the Palomino and the Ship among others) provided the opportunity to get to know and then play with many of Calgary and Alberta’s household names. Frank just loves to sing – his tastes are eclectic, soulful and playful and he wants above all to move you. He plays solo and with the RevFrank band.
