Jukka Mäkinen & BluesLovers proudly presents:
Shannon McNally & Brett Hughes (USA)
One of the best Americana singer-songwriters Shannon McNally performs at Down Home Kivi. Her music is a combination of blues, folk, soul, country, rock and even gospel.
For those who have followed McNally’s nearly twenty year career the thing that most sticks with the listener about her, is the timeless effortlessness that she brings to all she does. With a long catalog and longer list of peers with whom she has written, recorded and toured, McNally continues to turn out great music that defies blatant genre-fication.
Her new album "Black Irish" is McNally’s most personal project yet, which is saying a lot, given the Americana singer-songwriter’s deep catalog. But it speaks to the power of connection, and the power of music to create it and to reflect it. The kick off track “You Made Me Feel For You”, was written by her producer, Americana icon, Rodney Crowell, and serves as a metaphor for their collaboration - how his particular understanding of her unique gifts pulled out the career-defining album many have been waiting for since she came on the scene.
Tickets 25€. Doors at 8pm, showtime at 9.30pm.
