The concert is part of the on-going Split Level Concert Series which highlights critically acclaimed singer-songwriters in a uniquely intimate setting.
Shannon McNally conjures ghosts and heroines, thieves, lovers and redeemers in a transcendent folk-blues, country-rock moonshine she’s been pulling straight from the still for nearly 20 years. She’s been living in the deep South for fifteen years, first in New Orleans, then moving to the higher ground in the North Mississippi Hill Country after Hurricane Katrina.
Shannon’s latest recording, Small Town Talk, is a loving, collaborative tribute to the late Bobby Charles, conceived and created together with the great Dr. John and his Lower 911 Band at Dockside Studios, deep in Louisiana’s bayou heart. Off Beat Magazine nominated the collection for Album of the Year 2014. She’s released 10 albums, been nominated for a Grammy Award, and performed with a who’s who of rock, country and soul: Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Vince Gill, Levon Helm, Charlie Sexton, Dr. John, Rufus Wainwright, Anders Osbourne, Luther and Cody Dickinson, Greg Leisz, and Derek Trucks.
Upcoming Split Level Concerts include Rod Picott at The Loft at UCPAC on March 12th, Sarah Borges at The Loft at UCPAC on April 16th and Jeanne Jolly in the Fazioli Room at Hamilton Stage on May 7th.
