We’re an Adelaide band formed in 2013 with the intention to write and perform original rollickin’ roots tunes. We’re a trio, an Irishman an Englishman and a Russian playing Celtic music in Australia....We’ve just completed our first EP called Pogue Mahone (Irish for Kiss My Arse). The Shambolics play raucous rollickin’ roots music, with tunes from Dublin Bay to Vladivostok and songs inspired by a lost weekend in a sheebeen in downtown Birmingham; England not Alabama.All sorts of instruments will be on the stage and some of them might actually be played – pipes, whistles, banjo, accordion, guitars, harps and even a bodhran to get the feet stompin...The lads hammer out mainly rollickin’ original tunes but might even do a few tunes by the Pogues, DKM and Floggin Molly ! Put on Yer dancing clogs on and get down to a Shambos gig – or we’ll come and get yeh!!
