The Shee have reached their tenth anniversary and are celebrating with a brand new body of original work. Following three albums and a hectic touring schedule, the six members of the band have each commissioned an influential musician to write an original piece of music which they premiered at a sold out concert at Celtic Connections 2016: Andy Cutting, Brian Finnegan, Karine Polwart, Martin Simpson, Kathryn Tickell and Chris Wood.
