Who is Shanakee?
My name is Samuel Thomas Brett, a native of Sligo town on Ireland’s remote and wind swept Atlantic northwest. Join me on an insightful and evocative journey through the Irish landscape of the soul, exploring the deep reaches of myth and vernacular philosophy through story, song and an ancient family tradition in storytelling that stretches back to the dawn of human settlement on this island.


Being a Patron. what does it mean?
With the generous support of patrons and subscribers the hope is that this very special legacy can be preserved and carried forward, archived and presented in a manner that does it justice. The aim is to produce a body of archived material presented in the form of an epic family story with the history and myths of Ireland as a backdrop. Ultimately the aim is to produce a feature length documentary on the fascinating living tradition in our family and this corner of the west of Ireland.

Background to the process
In order to focus on the archiving and preservation of the family legacy and tradition I decided to pursue and develop this concept professionally and as a result Shanakee was formally founded in 2017. Shanakee was established initially as a tour operator but as of 2018 I have also established Shanakee productions to focus on the recording, producing and dissemination of this unique creative content.

Earnings through guiding unique storytelling tours was seen as a means to financing and promoting this work.

Performance
As a musician and spoken word performer my ambition is to bring the native tradition of spoken prose to life with professional musical accompaniment to the natural rhythms and ‘song’ of the original traditional Irish instrument, the human voice.
I have performed in the US at the Kansas city Irish fest and in private performances at castle venues throughout Ireland you can check my availability through www.shanakee.ie or by email at [email protected] 


So Míle fáilte, a thousand welcomes and many thanks for your support.
