Bruce Maclean’s New Song, “Joe Shea” – Music VIDEO


WELLFLEET – For Cape Cod music lovers, even those who did not know Joe Shea, this poignant new song by Bruce Maclean just might make you smile, laugh, or even tear up. And you might find yourself, like us, singing along with the chorus.

Maclean is from the same town of Waterbury, Connecticut as Shea, the recently deceased owner of O’Shea’s Olde Inne, an iconic venue for many Cape musicians. “Something I had in common with my friend Joe Shea,” Maclean sings.

Cape Cod Wave did not know Shea, but we know many musicians who admired him. One such musician, who we have long admired is Maclean, who debuted this song, “Joe Shea” on Sunday at one of the nicest places on Cape Cod, The Pearl.

Playing with MacLean were Liam Hogg on drums and Ron Siegel on bass. If those names are familiar, it is because they are in Sarah Swain & Oh Boys!, the Rip-It-Ups, Earth Junior, and others. Recently Hogg played with Zoe Lewis.
