Shane Pendergast is a folksinger from Tracadie Cross, Prince Edward Island. His connection to Maritime folk music dates back to the efforts of his great-grandparents, preservers of folklore in P.E.I. Shane is carrying the torch forward with his own songs, inspired by rural life and Maritime history. Shane is known as an old-school troubadour, and “might just become the East Coast’s de facto King of Folk” (The East). His most recent album, “Second Wind” won Contemporary Roots Recording of the Year at the 2022 Music PEI Awards.
