Who Are We?




We are sad to announce that Rob Barrick has decided to leave the band. Peter, Eddie, and Ken are going to continue performing as a trio because Rob is essentially irreplaceable.

If you want to know what Rob is doing (playing, recording, and teaching) check out his website:

We were recently interviewed by the 67Music website and they took some video of a performance at Irishtown Pub:

"We got lucky once more and heard a master play on his own hand made instrument. We also experienced a well tenured band that have blossomed into their musical prime. Just like a glistening new coin, New Shilling glowed last month at Holy Trinity with original members, Peter Yeates, Eddie Parente, Rob Barrick and bodhran master, Ken Larson.

New Shilling shined bright with their flawless instrumentals that included jigs, reels, slip jigs and modern Celtic presentations. Their songs deeply moved the audience that included many faces that were happy to see the band in their new form.

Peter's voice was well oiled and sounded like fine weathered velvet.
Rob's bass guitar created a sturdy foundation. His piping was immaculate.
Ken's bodhran kept the beat at 90 craic.
Eddie's expertise violin playing kept the blood flowing strong throughout the concert.
The audience were very true!

Lovely Concert"

The members of New Shilling are some of the most sought-after Celtic musicians in the Pacific Northwest, known for their inventive, fun and exceptional musicianship. All the members played in the fondly-recalled Full Shilling, and have played together in various combinations over the years; it seemed a natural to put this group together. A brand new CD is on it's way, and on it the band shines with a host of new tunes and songs as well as some old classics.

Our CDs are now available on iTunes
