Shannon creates contemporary folk music with rich vocals and songs that resonate with a strong sense of the human experience.

5:30p Zorch Boomhauer

Diversity, intensity, reverence and heresy, with a breath drawn long sometimes stretched tense as silvered steel over wood and bone, with the power of his evocative and thought provoking lyrics – that’s Zorch Boomhauer. His music has a sometimes painful directness and honesty rarely found even in earthy folk, and his tales tell themselves as elegantly in melody as in his sometimes brutal words.

6p Raspbury Rearwin

Staying as far below the radar as he can, he’ll Ninja surprise you with his sultry smooth take on the songs you forgot you loved and a few you never heard before. Gripping originals and covers you won’t recognize make for an hour of fun and aural pleasure 🙂
