Shane Pendergast

Shane Pendergast is a folksinger from Tracadie Cross, Prince Edward Island. He learned to play by ear at an early age, immersed in a culture of family kitchen parties. Shane’s connection to Maritime folk music dates back to the efforts of his great-grandparents, preservers of folklore on PEI. Shane is carrying the torch forward with his own songs of Maritime lore and life experiences. Known as an old-school troubadour, he “might just become the East Coast’s de facto King of Folk.” (The East). His 2021 album “Second Wind” won Contemporary Roots Album of the Year at the Music PEI Awards.
