Shamus and Steve's Crazy Celtic Journey to Glasgow, Vol. 1

by Steven Hawson

Steven Hawson stars in this whacky, "Monty Pythonesque" comedy album about twin brothers Shamus (banjo) and Steve (accordion) and their ill-fated road trip. A hilarious story with 25 off-beat characters and comic settings of popular Celtic melodies.

Steven Hawson has been described as the "Weird Al Yankovic" of Celtic music. Now, with Shamus and Steve's Crazy Celtic Journey to Glasgow, the Albuquerque-based musical gagman has taken his deft (and daft) talents where no Celtic laddie has gone before! A multi-faceted musician and gifted voice actor, Hawson breaks new creative ground in this two-volume comic misadventure with an array of off-beat characters, "Monty Pythonesque" sketches, unorthodox settings of Irish and Scottish melodies, and an intricate story line replete with egg-headed non-sequiturs and side-splitting banter. Destined to become an instant classic, Shamus and Steve's Crazy Celtic Journey to Glasgow is a must have for everyone who enjoys the Celtic genre...and a good clean laugh.

Special thanks to Casio Electronics for making the incidental music sound so good (or bad). No Celts were hurt during the making of these recordings, but several became outraged. Yes, there really is a Glasgow Montana. No, that’s not a real Viking language. Up Galatia!
