For 'The Shadows' Tour in Spring 2020 The Shee will be joined by a new member; Scottish-Icelandic percussionist Signy Jakobsdottir, adding a fesh approach to the band’s huge catalogue of material.
 
Folowing on from 'Continuum' which was the released in 2016 to celebrate ten years as a band, they’re now working on material for their new album. It will feature an adventurous brew of Folk, Gaelic and Bluegrass music. Expect low airs, Gaelic ballads, original songs, highenergy tunes, hypnotic riffs, and of course … clog dancing!
